Last weekend we were not able to send out the fire truck in time and by the time we put down our donuts, the entire Pig City was in ruins and the aroma of bacon filled the air, for it was International Bacon Day last Saturday!
Indulging in the finest pig tradition of Eating and Sleeping, I was on the wrong side of the border fence to be able to post this article on time as animals of the Sheep-Pig-Cat Alliance was reviewing the King Pig’s most evil of plans unveiled in sunny Malaysia, but nevertheless, Rovio was kind enough to pick a Weekend Challenge machine that the Pigineering Department wouldn’t feel left out, for we had somehow created a working fire bacon truck a full year ago!
As you can see, the Pigineering Department always strives to create not just show-worthy but functional objects to showcase the art and science of bacon-dynamics; our fire truck features not just working water-cannon on a swivelling arm to direct streams of cooling soda to just the right parts of sizzling bacon (regardless of it being Canadian, British or American bacon) while remaining compact enough to fit in a burning prop of your favourite disaster scene!
Now I will ask you, devout followers of Bacon – what does your fire-rescue vehicle look like, and who did you save with it? Comment below…
