This Bacon Joe Arpaio is a Porky Politician Portrait

May 23, 2011

If you thought the bacon recreation of Van Gogh's Starry Night we posted earlier this month was bizarre, you'll get a kick out of this bacon Joe Arpaio portrait made by bacon lovers at Phoenix New Times blog Chow Bella.

Joe Arpaio is the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona; he bills himself as the "toughest sheriff in America." Despite his polarizing public position, the sheriff inspired Chow Bella bloggers to layer and arrange $75 worth of pork products to create this bacon Joe Arpaio portrait.
