I'm sure you were referring to today's comic. However, the generic xkcd link brings up only the current one. You need to append the comic's sequential number to make it a permanent link -- like this: http://xkcd.com/1774/ -- this info is just below the Previous, Random, and Next buttons.

It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

How about groan-worthy company names or advertising slogans?

 

One of my personal favourites comes from Bernardin, a Canadian manufacturer of Mason jars and related accessories. Their slogan? 

 

"Because you can."

While looking at cookbooks in thrift stores this week a most bizarre fictional title came to mind: The Cannibal's Treasury of Recipes - Good Eating From Head to Toe.

On that subject, I've occasionally mused that a humanitarian sounds like a very specialised type of carnivore.

"Long Pig Longings" was my hypothetical title for an anthropophagical tome.

Over in the Kitchen Gadgets thread, @Anna N shared a gadget that enables one to make hot dog-shaped burgers.  I got a greater chuckle from the "Customers .....also bought" items, which led me to a whole line of bacon-related products:

Bacon Body Washir?t=egulletcom-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B00GBPB9U

Bacon-flavored Toothpasteir?t=egulletcom-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B004MBNK5

Bacon dental flossir?t=egulletcom-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B001BYO4I (waxed, though one might think that unnecessary for bacon!)

Bacon bandaidsir?t=egulletcom-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B000SSV8A (sterile, no less :D)

Bacon lip balmir?t=egulletcom-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B002SIFQU

 

The products are also helpfully combined into:

Deluxe bacon grooming kitir?t=egulletcom-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B00G2GSS4

Extreme bacon grooming kitir?t=egulletcom-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B00GSY0TW

and others!

 

Edited to add, I don't think this is new and has probably been cited here before but it did give me a good chuckle so I figured I could share again.

The worst part of finding all that bacon stuff is that yesterday was my bacon-loving brother's birthday.  If only I'd seen it a few days earlier!  Oh well, there's always next year.....
