Bacon, Fake Bacon for James Bond

It looks like James Bond himself, actor Daniel Craig, is a little confused as to what makes a good breakfast. While filming Quantum of Solace, Craig decided he was going to stick with the ideal of a traditional English breakfast, no matter what—so he had bacon shipped to him on location. In case you haven’t heard, that location was Italy—and yes, the bacon came all the way from England.

Wow. You know you have a meat addiction when you have to get your pork products shipped internationally!

So to help him out, our friends at PETA Europe decided to send Craig a sample of the best faux bacon available. Fakin’ bacon comes free of heart-clogging cholesterol and heart-stopping cruelty (like cutting off the teeth, tails, and testicles of piglets without giving them painkillers and slaughtering pigs while they are still conscious), so it’s a win-win situation for any bacon lover!

And by the way, I’d also like to point out that eating meat has been linked to impotence. After all, cholesterol can clog arteries that lead to all organs, right? And that’s one problem that the fictional James Bond would never come across.
