    There would be many benefits, and a few drawbacks....first, it would leave Muslims out of the loop financially, however, the spoilage within a short time would limit it's use to the "here and now"....ever try "Chicken Fried Bacon"?

    If we must have edible currency I think chocolate would make a better choice. They both have their drawbacks--either will make you fat and bacon will spoil (thus controlling inflation?) but chocolate will melt and you'll find yourself scraping your wallet for the last little bits, much like real money.

    Sorry, as much as I love bacon, it's not as valuable as a currency as actual money. Tasty? Yes. Able to store nicely in my wallet for months without use? Not so much.

    I'm vegan and I don't think I would want to use any one type of food as money anyway. I do like the idea of bartering, though.

    A different take on "giving a pound of flesh" to the Revenue or collection agency.
    Stock some of these in your LARD-er.

    Packing Bacon

    Also, make sure you have appropiate 'dinner utensils' when you want to 'pig out' while "Stars" (Vega's one) & "Crescent Wrenches" are 'messing up the works' outside.

    If we're using an edible substitute for our currency today, it'll probably be corn. We eat corn, many animals we eat are corn-fed (including succulent pigs), and we find it in some foods for household pets. Some of our food is made using corn (ex. Corn flakes). Some use it as fuel. When the price of corn goes up, the prices of other food follows. My bet is corn.

    Too 'Corny' for my taste but I do enjoy Pastrami, a fancy kind of 'corned' beef.
    Did not George Washington wear a tri-corn hat? It's the American Weigh!
    Am I a 'Larding' Corn-ucopia? Got you corn-ered!
    Nauseous? Up your Corn-hole!
