The guys at Think Geek also are into some slightly sick humor. They created the My First BaconPlushtoy for today, April 1st. My First Bacon is a ThinkGeek exclusive plush toy that will delight your little ones. Even if they're not on solid foods yet, your progeny shouldn't be deprived of the joys of bacon. Soft and snuggly with big giant eyes, My First Bacon is both friendly and reliable, just like actual bacon. Update: Think Geek offers My First Bacon for real now.
Squeeze him and he says, "I'm Bacon!". No matter what the situation, he says, "I'm Bacon!" This reminds children that no matter what happens in life, they should be true to themselves and always be proud of who they are. Which of course, means bacon lovers. What child on this planet wouldn't want to befriend a piece of mostly meat held together with fat and love? And don't just think about the kids, adults enjoy My First Bacon just as much as the kids do. Sometimes a little too much.
You can watch a short video featuring the My First Bacon toy.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
