The Silk Bacon Scarf, For The Man Who Has Everything

It’s called the “Fou Lard” and it’s a scarf. A 100% silk scarf. That’s digitally printed–wait for it–to look like bacon.

This is the brain child of Swiss artist, Natalie Luder, and is apparently meant to symbolize man’s dominance over animals. Or something.

The German expression “man ist, was man isst” (you are what you’re eating) characterises an identity-generating component of food that can be very well assigned to jewellery too. In terms of a trophy the wearer overtakes the qualities of the slaid [sic] animal and blazons himself with the heroic hunting story.

Anyway, the whole thing’s available for purchase if you want to remind people that you eat bacon and/or hunt pigs. Which is great, because the gift-giving season is well upon us.

Also worth knowing: the name of the scarf, Fou Lard, is a play on words. It comes from the French word for silk (foulard), which is made up from the words fou (crazy) and lard (fat). The foulard fou lard, or the silk crazy fat. Because…you know. Bacon.

We see what you did there, Natalie.

While the first two are happily combined, the third tends to get in the way, since it turns out the average reader is uninterested in sleep blogs. She also enjoys coffee, probably too much, if there is such a thing.
