Bacon Boy

Well we've had Captain Bacon and we've all dreamed of a bacon superhero and now here he is with his side kick Sgt. sausage and arch nemesis Fry guy. Bacon Boy was created by Austin (age 10) with the help of Frank Etxanix. The full story on Bacon Boy and how he came to be can be seen on line at The World with a great article written by Kathy Aney.

Bacon Boy:
Super Powers - Shoots bacon bits out of one hand and grease out of the other. He also has meat vision to propel sausages and corn dogs out of his eyes and uses suction to upload various substances like water and grease.

Fry Guy:
Goal - To burn his enemies
Super Powers - normal shape is a frying pan but turns into whatever he touches.

The Hot shop team from Tacoma's Museum of Glass created glass sculptures from 2 of Austin's drawings and with his help, turned them into one masterpiece. While they were creating the piece, bacon was cooking on the stove for ambiance and every so often the sculptors would cry out "Bacon's Cookin' "

Here is a link to the museum of glass' blog showing the Hot Shot guys making Austin's sculpture and the end product.

Austin unfortunately has leukemia. I know from personal experience that this can be a hard time and I think it would be wonderful if we can all join together and find a way to help Austin on this Bacon Day. Any ideas on how to go about this would be great.


Alexa and the Bacon Boys.
