I was wrong... about bacon

For months, I've been warning anyone who will listen that we've reached peak bacon; the bacon bubble is about to burst. If you want to keep your hipness cred with the kids, it's time to get out of bacon find the next big thing. And zombies or sulky, sexy vampires are not it; they've also peaked.

I'm still right about zombies and vampires, but it looks like I was wrong about bacon. Bacon still has a few tricks up its tasty, tantalizing sleeve.
Technology has given us a lot lately. The car. TV. X-rays. The refrigerator. The Internet. Heck, we even cured polio. But what have our envelopes tasted like for the last 4,000 years? Armpit, that's what.

Really, people? If we can't overcome this kind of minor technical challenge, it's only a matter of time until some super-advanced race of aliens with lasers, spaceships and a delicious federal mail system comes down and colonizes the world. And nobody wants that (except for the aliens, of course).

So, after thousands of years and kajillions of horrible tasting envelopes licked, we're happy to report that J&D's Bacon-Flavored Mmmvelopes™ are here to save the day. No longer will envelopes taste like the underside of your car. You can enjoy the taste of delicious bacon instead.

That's right, bacon. It's not real bacon, mind you, so you won't have to start storing your envelopes in the refrigerator. But it really does taste like bacon. Which is what you really wanted in the first place, isn't it? And it only took us 4,000 years to get there. Eat that, alien invaders.
