The Answer to Every Question: Tactical Canned Bacon

Plus, a Marc by Marc Dress That Breaks All the Rules, and Diehard Marathoner Sneaks for Men


Tac Bac is short for Tactical Canned Bacon ($15.99), but long on taste. (Sorry, we had to say it.) Reinforced with enough preservations to reanimate the dead, this nine-ounce can of real bacon strips has a shelf life of more than 10 years. Just consider the scenario presented by the fine folks at Think Geek:

We will survive this invasion, this walking pestilence. We will, because we were smart enough to stock up on Tac Bac - Tactical Canned Bacon. Yes, we have been surviving on bacon. That is why we are strong; that is why we'll win.

OK, so it's not for everyone, but this silk Marc by Marc Panthera Dress (was $568, now $199) caught our eye because of its shiny-bold pattern and utterly unapologetic ruffles. This dress sure knows how to multitask -- strapless, ruffles, a dangling box, a see-through portion. So we can't quite decided why we're so captivated. We just know we are.
