And Now, ‘Bacon Candles’
I have to tell you, I’m a sucker for candles. No my wife and I don’t have them all over the house, so before you start envisioning JD sitting in a tub with 40 candles burning and Michalel Buble crooning on an I-pod we’ll just snuff that one out.
But I like them. I like their smell. Mostly, I’m the guy you see opening all the candles at the store, giving them a whiff and checking out the next one. (If you’ve ever bought a candle, chances are I’ve opened it and smelled it.
So when I saw today that Yankee Candle Company was going to offer a Bacon Candle My nose perked up!
But maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. Look at some of the smells that we already have to deal with. ‘Clean Cotton,’ ‘Sugar Cookies,’ ‘French Lilac,’ ‘Whimsical Breeze,’ and now ‘Bacon!’ I see they’ve also added Movie Night (smells like popcorn) First Down (This combination of orange, patchouli, vetiver and leather is as exciting as game day.)
Can you imagine the ‘what the hell,’ look your dog would give you when you fired one of those bad boys up? Or if some clown mixed them around with the real ones at a restaurant? Or at church? Or light one some morning and the wife and kids will think there’s a real breakfast on the way.
As long as we’re talking Bacon, how ’bout some other smells that are interesting. Wouldn’t it be cool if they had a candle that smelled like ‘Crayola Crayons?’ How about ‘Walleye’ or ‘sure to be a favorite for the farmer in the crowd, ‘ Diesel and Dirt’ or ‘Full Bloom Alfalfa.’
It’s wide open folks. If they bring in candles that smell like Bacon all bets are off.
So, what do you think? Bacon candles a good idea or not?
Sounds like a good idea to get one of those ‘Sugar Cookie Candles’ to torch up after the ‘Bacon.’ Otherwise we’ll have to throw open the windows and grab a fan. Oh, I forgot to mention, now I have something to put on my birthday and Fathers Day list.
