With the imaginative efforts of Hormel Food Corporation and BBDO Minneapolis they have commissioned the magic mechanic hands of Charlie Smithson of CS Engineering to redesign a 3-cylinder 800CC diesel fueled motorcycle engine, and converted into a pork grease sucking café racer motorbike. The bio-fueled pig grime eating machine gets 70 miles a gallon, as its ripping the roads zipping across America, while its mouthwatering intoxicating exhaust is leaving behind the savory fragrance of freshly homemade bacon, now that is an awful tease to our taste buds America.

It is as if you are able to savor that crispy crunch in your mouth as it drives by, that it is so sinful. Come-now, that it is like having the "LT" (letuce and tomato) on a sourdough bun and only being allowed to smell the "B" (bacon), and "where is the justice in that?" The concept has gone far beyond riding a "hog", you are now able to smell it too, and it could have never smelled any sweeter.

So ladies, do not toss out those iron skillets, and for heaven sake, do not dump-out that bacon grease just yet. You could be dumping gold down the drain, pig oil that is golden or amber in color. Just think twice before using the pork grease on your morning hotcakes, spreading it on your rolls or smearing it on your neck in the morning, because you happen to like the “buzz” of flies round you.

Run out (or use your cellphone) and go tell your kinfolks, yes this has possibly become a scene like in the "The Beverly Hillbillies" (if you are old enough to remember them). As it can give crude oil (also known as "black gold and Texas' tea") a run for its money. Pork fuel would be much more environmentally friendlier with its low emissions as a bio-fuel, and that is also yummy, that the country can smell like bacon.

Since it is sort of green, this would be a great way for vegetarians to consider using the bio-fuel too, after all they are not eating it, and the plus side of that is that they are just sniffing a little protein, and that never hurts. The grand thought of it all: “is that we would no longer have the need to drill for oil that will ruin the environment.”

Just to imagine, you will wake-up in the wee hours of the morning reaching into the fridge and pulling out about 250 pounds of smoked-bacon, to get enough of that saucy fat, then stepping back to your lab to convert the pork grime into 275 gallons of bio-fuel for that fancy new grease sucking engine, it is that simple.

There you have it, snatch-up three skillets that are possibly hanging on the wall, switch on that stove then sit back for a bit until you hear the popping sizzling sounds of bacon fuel, so cook-it-up. Or you can always hope that Dan Kaderabek, founder of Bio-Blend Fuels, Inc. will share the skillet size and how he made the finger licking grease to fuel that café racer hog.

The slap to the pig's snout is the price of bacon has plans on going up, and the cost to fuel the hog might cost you as much as the price of gasoline and diesel fuel for that fact, adding in the time it would take to make. I do not think that anyone told these engineers. That there has been a pork plague that began last year when the a virus swept through America's pig farming industry infecting about 30 states that killed more than a million pigs. Ouch, another punch to the sow’s belly.

The hog-bike is expected to arrive on August 29 at the "2nd Annual International Bacon Film Festival' in San Diego, California, where it will be cheered and admired with many, many “ahs”. Once the hoopla is all over the lovely smell of bacon will leave our highways dry once and forever as the pork-belly motorcycle will be retired and displayed at the "Spam Museum" in Austin, Minnesota.
