There was a short period in my life when I attempted to practice vegetarianism. It didn’t stick. During that time, I was often haunted by the ghosts of bacon past. I’ve been far happier since bacon and I were reunited.Earlier this week I was thrilled to find Skulls and Bacon, another blog dedicated to skulls, but with bacon as a bonus niche. Noting that the blog didn’t have any sort of logo to represent its themes, an obvious idea presented itself. I thought, this blog needs a skull and cross-bacon logo: a Jolly Roger pirate flag with crossed strips of bacon in place of the bones. It just made too much sense. Think about it. Pirates would travel at sea for months with no fresh food to eat. This left dried goods and cured meats as their options. I think it’s safe to assume that, in between bouts of scurvy and dysentery, pirates were probably bacon enthusiasts.Unwilling to miss the opportunity of drawing such a fun logo, I contacted the blog’s owner and offered up my idea. She accepted and here it is.
