A couple of barbecue fans concoct a recipe for a bacon-wrapped, bacon-stuffed log of sausage. The media writes about it. Now, they have a book deal. And that's when the idea of 'books' became ridiculous.

Even in what we thought were some of the most ridiculous book deals in recent memory—a book by a blogger known only for making people mad, or a book of Twitter posts, or a $2 million deal for Kathy Griffin—you had to admit that each project did, in fact, originate with somebody who had some aspiration of assembling a book. No mas! Now you just need a good bacon log recipe and the publishing industry will come knocking down your door with a six-figure advance!

Sorry for those of you who believe in "literature." [Eat Me Daily]
