My First Bacon, by ThinkGeek

My First Bacon, aka "Mr. Bacon", is a plush stuffed "animal" (object? food stuff?) that belts out the phrase "I'm bacon!" when you squeeze him. He's awesome because true geeks know that everything goes better with bacon.

I figure he was created to sway toddlers away from vegetarianism (I spelled that correctly on the first try, by the way), because what's more adorable than a plushy you want to eat?  Nothing.

He's actually pretty substantial at 19 inches tall. Doesn't weigh much. Runs on batteries. Highly recommended for babies, toddlers, and man-children who love bacon. 

Dogs are oddly unimpressed.
