You know online shopping has reached a new low (high?) when there is a market for the Bacon Tuxedo. This stunning $100 suit, even imbued with the scent of bacon, comes from the gag gift geniuses at Archie McPhee. Wondering where to wear? Obviously it's a ticket to stardom at any party shot by the Cobrasnake, or here would have been perfect. As pointless as the bacon tuxedo might seem, remember that there is always something worse and in this case we're going with the inflatable toast. [Archie McPhee]
