Some of you might have a coronary just from looking at this. It’s a replica of the Vince Lombardi trophy made out of bacon. The braintrust at BBQ Addicts gives credit to Ben “Sweet Lou” Krout for the work, as submitted to their site. And how sweet it is.

The [actual Vince Lombardi Trophy], created by Tiffany & Co. is valued at $50,000,and depicts a regulation-size football in kicking position that is made entirely of sterling silver, standing 22 inches (56 cm) tall, weighing 7 pounds (3.2 kg), it takes approximately four months and 72 man-hours to create….After the trophy is awarded, it is sent back to Tiffany’s to be engraved with the winning team’s name, the date and final score of the Super Bowl, and then is sent back to the winning team for them to keep. –Wiki.

I know what you’re thinking. How did they get all that bacon to stand up like that? Don’t ruin the moment. Pork-based facsimilies of pro football’s highest prize are to be treasured, not scrutinized. And really, all trophies should be edible. There’s nothing better than celebrating a campaign’s worth of hard work than eating baked flesh. It worked for Joe Biden, anyway. — via Intentional Foul.
