SUNDAY'S PALMS ARE WEDNESDAY'S...BACON?


In the spirit of Holy Week, I offer this crunchy example of lipid textiles gone wrong. In Christianity, the palms waved at Palm Sunday are burned, and their ashes collected for the following Lent's Ash Wednesday. But what about the strange devotees of the 'Six Degrees of Separation'? What objects will they symbolically transform?

Here, on the other hand, we have the remnants of one of the Suidae (say the last quickly and it sounds like an endearment, heh).....stitched into a placemat. Full instructions are found here. This weirdness courtesy of Brownian via PZ's place.

Mmm, bacon textiles. Just like Mom used to make.

You know, you could just put a big ol' cork directly into your aorta.
