The train was en route to Chicago from San Diego when it ran into a truck trying to cross the tracks. Luckily there were no serious injuries reported, but the real casualty was all this bacon. RIP bacon, we knew you well.
Imagine if you never had pay for bacon ever again… or at least for the next 20 years.
Well now that’s a possibility, thanks to the Hoosier Lottery in Indiana.
They have unveiled a new $2 scratch off game this week called “Bringin’ Home the Bacon,” which is both bacon-scented and gives you the chance to win 20 years worth of the artery-clogging deliciousness.
You can also win up to $10k in cash to pay for all those medical bills from your cardiologist.
The website promoting the new ticket includes a bacon quiz, bacon recipes, a link to Facebookasking you debate Tongs vs Forks, and a “Bacon Cam” where you can watch some strips sizzle in a frying pan.
There are also various events around the state associated with the game (in partnership with Indiana Pork), including one at the Indiana State Far in August.
Now you can gamble with your money and your health.
