Our obsession with bacon and bacon-flavored objects has reached the point where even wildly improbable jokes are coming true.

J&D's, maker of such novelties as bacon salt and bacon lip balm, has introduced Baconlube, a personal lubricant that tastes like bacon.

As J&D's explains on its website, Baconlube began as an April Fool's prank a few years ago.

But when the joke ended, the emails kept coming. People harassed us via email, in public and in highly inappropriate ways (thanks for that). The waiting list grew to over 3,000 people. Expectations were built.

Baconlube costs $11.99 for a two-ounce bottle, or $59.99 for a six pack of two-ounce bottles. Gut Check is scrounging around our sofas and cars for quarters to order our bottle right now.
