People sometimes say “when pigs fly,” but the boys at rathergood took that phrase literally and decided to combine two of our favorite things in the world: bacon and rockets. The result was a mostly edible device with a bacon fuselage, a sausage nose cone, toast fins and a plastic straw (one could sip tea through it). But does the bacon rocket fly?

Spoiler Alert…

Rockets are meant to go up, not down. We don't recommend rigging a rocket, even if it's not built out of pork products, onto a wire that's pointed towards your house. That, right there, is why the British lost the war.

Enjoy your freedom, and your bacon, Americans.
