    L to R: Alvin, Simon, Theodore

  2. Lacey says:

    well… we’re 3 degrees closer to Kevin now….

  3. ColorfulKate says:

    Is that Kevin Bacon?

  4. Annie says:

    yum……. breakfast!

  5. Annie says:

    Will the sisters come in in little egg dresses?

  6. Shannon says:

    I know I have seen that boy in the middle somewhere or this pic somewhere.

    I am 99% sure that this is a photoshop job, if anyone cares. The pattern on the bacon is quite a bit clearer than what would match up with the faces, which are slightly blurred. If you look at the leftmost hand, for instance, the line is too harsh where the hand touches the coat. The lighting is also a little off.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very good photoshop job. But I do this sort of thing with wedding photos all the time and can see it a mile away.

    • Cat says:

      What’s the going rate for putting all the wedding party into bacon attire? Is it a special service or does it come with a package?

    • Lacey says:

      don’t think so there, Sarski.

      It’s a real item… and it’s officially called “Uncle Oinker’s Bacon Scented Bacon Print Tuxedo”.

      I’m typically really good at spotting photoshop jobs… and this to me doesn’t scream photoshop. Even in the areas you’re talking about…. I use photoshop…

  9. Special says:

    I would totally be nibbling on my sleeves if I were them.
    Gotta get me a bacon suit!

  10. Stev says:

    It puts the lotion in the basket…hurry up, we need an outfit for the Sears photoshoot.

  11. Michaela says:

    Great. Now I’m hungry.

  12. Badger says:

    Release the hounds…

  13. MB says:

    I have only one question. Why?

  14. Lulu says:

    My first thought is that their last name is Bacon ala Kevin Bacon. Either way if this is legit it’s a sad joke…..but it still makes me howl!

  15. Cammie says:

    Insane enough to buy ONE bacon suit… but three? Where was child protective services on this one? I’m sure Kevin Bacon wouldn’t even touch this one.

  16. Jill says:

    bacon wrapped shrimp

    • Amanda says:

      MMMMM Yum Bacon wrapped shrimp with a peace of jalapeno pepper in the middle on the grill is so gooooooood!

  17. MST says:

    I wonder if the Bacon boys are from Canada…. you know…. the Canadian Bacons, eh?

  18. Karen says:

    Just thought I’d let you know – there is a real set of “Bacon Brothers”. There last name is truly Bacon (and I’m not talking about Kevin Bacon!) – they’re a notorious gang family in Vancouver BC that’s been behind a TON of shootings here in Vancouver.

  19. Angie says:

    Bacon bacon bacon bacon BACOOOOOOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My dogs are salivating around me.

  20. esp says:

    ok, the little one does not even look like the other 2. did the mom pick up an extra kid to fill out the other vest?

  21. daisy says:

    So cute I could eat them up!

  22. ajAX1 says:

    Offspring of Slim Goodbody and Mrs. Piggy

  23. loganm says:

    By some coincidence, all three brothers grew up to be cops….

  24. WVBOBW says:

    once again, “PORK FAT RULES!”

  25. Joan Slawson says:

    I think Mom had an affair with the Butcher. That’s where the Bacon material AND the little brother on the right came from.

  26. MooLissa says:

    I actually snorted when I saw them…snorted in laughter..they will be so beat up at school..poor kids!

  27. Tim says:

    I dunno – they all look a little fried to me!

  28. caroline says:

    When I was a child, I too had to wear a bacon suit. It was the only way my parents could get the family dog to play with me.

  29. seano says:

    Hannibal Lecter’s grandkids…

  30. CG says:

    Ah, bacon……… greasy lover.
    A friend gave me bacon strip band-aids once.

    Face it, people. Bacon makes everything better.

  31. T-Money says:

    Little did they know at the time, this photo offers documented proof of One Degree of Separation…

  32. Brian says:

    Aside from the obvious weirdness of the suits, does anyone else think these kids look a bit like Alvin, Simon & Theodore (give the middle kid a pair of glasses)

  33. motaboy says:

    i heard they hunted down and killed the pig with their compound bows

  34. Susan says:

    I forgot to say that these bacon tuxedos cost $99.95 each, and the photo advertising them is slightly awkward.
    Now the puzzle is, did the parents buy 3 adult bacon tuxedos and have them sized smaller, or do the bacon tuxedos come in kids’ sizes.
    Maybe their last name IS Bacon.

  35. Celeste says:

    What exactly do you say to the seamstress who is going to make those suits “Yes, I want suits for all of my sons and of course make them out of bacon material!”

  36. chris says:

    i am officially turned off bacon

  37. Tishy says:

    With the boy in the middle I can see a bacon-ish waistband of likely bacon pants.

    I want bacon pants!
    If I ever get stuck in a lift I’ll have something to eat.

  38. Lindsay says:

    what a bunch of hams…. sorry, couldn’t resist!

  39. charlotte says:

    do you think they have the matching band-aids from urban outfitters?
    then again, if you wear a bacon suit, UA probably isn’t your kind of store (too many “i’m not a nugget” and “please don’t eat me” shirts).

  40. Charlene says:

    Fun with Photoshop aside, isn’t that actually prosciutto?

  41. BrideofChuky says:

    Alright, so I’m assuming that’s not real bacon, which leads to 3 major issues. 1) Something thought it would be cool to make bacon-esque fabric. 2) Someone thought that bacon-esque fabric should be made into suits and vests, and 3) Someone thought that it would be a great idea to subject these children to said suits…

  42. Don says:

    Technically speaking this is a great job of cropping. The original shot shows the family dog gnawing on the left pant leg of middle kid.

  43. DonKeyHoTay says:

    Awww, come on – it’s obvious their Dad runs a butcher shop – these outfits are a write-off as advertising expenses.

  44. Becca says:

    Why ?

    What did they do wrong ?

    Poor kids.

  45. balefulregards says:

    It is safe to assume they are not Jewish.

    And a note from the Van Helsings to their mother. Its Garlic which repels the vampires. Bacon only attracts the Werewolves.

    and Dogs* ….for the love of all that is arcane, it is a compound bow. Definitely NOT a cross bow. Have you learned nothing?

  46. Melba says:

    Coming up next – olive loaf swim wear!

  47. Susan says:

    The bigger one in the middle looks like he’s protecting his smaller brothers. He has a “pleading for understanding and help” look. I also feel quite bad for the person who conceived and sewed these outfits. It must have taken a lot of work. Surely they didn’t PLAN the bacon-ness. It must have just become evident afterwards. Surely.

  48. T says:

    These are kids found on a gag gift. It’s a joke because it’s just an empty box. They think they’re getting a bacon suit and they’re like..oh..thanks…then they open it and you have their real gift inside.
    Again, just a gag gift, not real.

  49. Rachel says:

    would have been cute had the boys ties also been strips of bacon…

  50. Rachel says:

    where do you even get bacon material? You can’t go into Walmart and pick it off the rack, I fear those outfits required a lot of thought on moms part…But why BACON that is just so weird !!
