Man Pays For Cross-Country Trip Using Bacon As Currency

samzenpus posted more than 2 years ago | from the my-favorite-of-the-salted-meats dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 176

An anonymous reader writes in with a story about the power of bacon."Travel can be expensive. One man is using a unique way to pay for a trip as a challenge. Pennsylvania comedian Josh Sankey is on a mission to make a cross-country road trip from New York to Los Angeles with no other currency but bacon. Sankey isn't carrying any cash or credit cards as he makes his cross-country trip. He is paying for everything from gas to lodging by using uncooked bacon as currency. He set off on his trip with 3,000 pounds of the popular meat and he seems to be getting good deals with it so far."

Have you seen the price of bacon lately? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#41395411)

It's a pricey commodity. So much so they're shrinking a lot of the package sizes from 16 to 12 ounces hoping you won't get as much sticker shock. (I had BLT's for dinner, using up some of my tomato bumper crop)

Israel has a lot of funny issues with pork (2)

SmallFurryCreature (593017) | more than 2 years ago | (#41396967)

It was a very touchy subject when Israel was created and many considerd it a bad sign for a free state that pork is indeed banned (Israel was supposed to be secular according to some founders, freedom for all, not just Jews). But an exception was made to allow Christian to raise pigs. Historically they are in the north and the farming has grown very intense creating a burden on the environment and creating unsanitary conditions. But any attempt to bring in normal farming regulations that are common in the rest of the world, any such law is seen as a religious attack on a minority group.

So... funny as it may sound, it is right now the Christians in Israel that have the greatest issue with pork... weird eh?

Re:He's going international next. (1)

Big Hairy Ian (1155547) | more than 2 years ago | (#41396649)

Israel shouldn't be too bad but I believe it's illegal to import pork products into Iran like most middle eastern predominantly Muslim countries except Turkey.

Bacon -- One of the Basic Food Groups (1)

Don't believe the propaganda from the PETA folks. Yes, the ducks/geese are fed through tubes but after they've done it once or twice so they know what is going on, they come running every time the farmer is there to feed them. One of the top advocates of Hudson Valley Foie Gras is a politician who believed the PETA crap and went to tour the farm expecting to see all sorts of abuse. Once he arrived he saw what was going on and realized that PETA had lied to him and has fought for and defended Hudson Valley Foie Gras ever since.

PETA is a terrorist organisation, members of whom have made credible death threats to close friends of mine because PETA disagreed with the morality of the animal research that my friends where doing.

As I understand it - coming from a family of ranchers on one side, and hunters/trappers on the other - a clean death (i.e. less suffering) is supposed to lead to better tasting meat. I've known many people who believe extra andrenaline and other stress hormones only decrease the flavor/quality of the meat.

  YMMV, of course. Maybe it's just a matter of personal taste ;)

Though this is not a laughing matter, it does belong on this site. The man has cracked the fiat currency, he is the hacker of the economy. If some farmer did it, who actually grows hogs, he'd be able to not pay the income taxes on his sales of bacon and only pay the sales taxes with it, when he transacts.

sumdumass (711423) | more than 2 years ago | (#41395689)

It will likely count as income too. The value of everything he receives in trade for the bacon is considered income by the IRS.

The IRS has been insisting that trading for value is income. Someone ( I forget who) took it to the extreme and started writing checks for two chickens and a pig to pay for his porch to be painted or something like that. They went after him/them for bank fraud and tried to storm his home creating a standoff situation that made brief national news. I forget the names but it was one of the many stand off situations during the Clinton years. Strangely, those types of law enforcement actions have seemed to disappear from national coverage if not from reality. I guess CNN has more important things to cover now.

Bacon as fuel? (0)

The real question is how far would he be able to get on bacon if he were to use it as fuel. I'm pretty sure he could burn the melted fat for fuel, and if he could get a mile a pound he'd might make it... He'd have to sleep in a car full of bacon (resisting the temptation to eat it) and pulling the extra weight across the country might make it unfeasible.

Re:Bacon as fuel? (0)

No, in fact he blows all the bacon having a grand 'ol walkabout. Taking it on the road is the exact opposite of bringing it home, you twit.

Unless bacon is ridiculously cheap in the US, it sounds like a pretty expensive trip to me. 3000 pounds of bacon would easily cost about 10000 dollars. Seems like a lot of money to go cross-country. I'm sure you can go cross-country much cheaper than that. [youtube.com]

Someone help me find one bridge or another to bring us to Bacon Blues.

...does one lug around a ton and a half of bacon? And without stopping somewhere and just gorging on the stuff?

He should use Fedeal Bacon Reserve Notes (1)

It is difficult carrying all that bacon around. He should just use FBRN's since you can exchange them for real bacon at any grocery store. Those people that say the Federal Bacon Reserve is printing more FBRN's than they have bacon in Fort Pork are conspiracy theorists.
