Worst Halloween Costume Update: Bacon Lady
We thought the human Facebook page costume might merit inclusion in our 10 Worst Halloween Costumes 2009, but Bacon Lady deserves an honorable mention. Jeremiah's Vanishing New York caught her chatting in the Meatpacking District (!) with a hot dog man, who was of Arabic extraction, as cameras rolled, and repeatedly asking him, "How do you say bacon in Arabic?" Maybe the promo was for Halal bacon. Jeremiah notes that the bacon outfit resembled a "vagina costume," which has been done, though the combination of that with a hot dog man conjures even more unpleasant images. But if Dick Chicken can go with Pussy Ham, who are we to judge? Diversity is our strength!
