Whitney Matheson, who writes the USA Today Pop Candy blog, introduced me to "Bacon Kevin Bacon." Simply put, it is "a sculpture of actor Kevin Bacon made out of — you guessed it — bacon and bacon bits."

The sculpture, which was created by artist Mike Lahue, is for sale on eBay. (With seven days remaining, the current bid is [a modest] $365.) J&D's Foods is running the auction.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own the most delicious piece of Bacon-on-bacon themed pop art ever created.  Whether you are a fan of American film icon Kevin Bacon, animal protein art enthusiast or just a lover of bacon, the undisputed king of all meats - Bacon Kevin Bacon is a must have.

Don’t worry, BKB has been well lacquered and will stay tasty for generations to come so stop listening to your inner-doubt, put in a bid and make every person you will ever know jealous of your legendarily epic greatness.

A few more things:

1.) The seller promises all proceeds from the sale will go to charity.

2.) The sculpture isn't edible.
