Mr. Bacon and Monsieur Tofu are ready to rumble but only one can remain at the top of the food chain! Mr. Bacon stands approximately 6-inches tall and fights for everything salty, meaty and tasty. Monsieur Tofu is approximately 4-inches tall and represents all things made of coagulated soy milk. The winner gets eaten for breakfast!
New playtime action figures from the same folks that brought you the . .
Angry Mob Play Set. Add some dramatic tension to your playtime with the Angry Mob figure set. Each set includes nine 2-3-inch tall, hard vinyl villagers wielding a variety of weapons for them to wave menacingly at the object of their disdain. Great for intimidating your action figures and teaching children the concept of pissed off taxpayer.

When I was a kid all we had to play with before breakfast was Lego's.

But on the question of Bacon vs. Tofu. Which would you rather have with your sour cream waffles?



I THOUGHT SO. I think even the angry mob would agree.
Or a black lab.


  1. Oh, that look on Barkley's face... were you holding bacon up?

  2. Dr. StrangeGun - that was a WAFFLE look. He started doing the happy dance when he saw the bacon.


    1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted 5 times
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    3 eggs, separated
    2 cups sour cream
    3 tablespoons
    butter, melted

    Spray waffle iron with vegetable cooking spray and heat on high. Sift flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and baking soda together. In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks thoroughly and add sour cream and melted butter. Stir yolk mixture into dry ingredients as quickly as possible. In a medium bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites lightly and carefully into batter. Put about 1/2 to 1 cup of batter into waffle iron. Bake 2 1/2 to 3 minutes (depends on waffle iron). Serve garnished as desired.

    These waffles will melt in your mouth and are worth the extra steps to make.

  3. My rotti loves almost anything remotely resembling people food. I have tried to hold two types (meat and pizza crust for example) in front of him to see which he prefers. It's simple to him. BOTH!

  4. Mmmmmmm. Toooofuu.

    Uh, no. Not. On. A. Bet.


  5. Ahhh, the joys of the Archie store... :)

  6. I want an angry mob playset! I want an angry mob playset! I want one too! Where can I get one huh huh huh?

  7. midnight rider -

  8. I forgot all about the joys of Archie McPhee, thanks for the reminder!

    Now, about those waffles and BACON... drool! I like my bacon cooked up in a little brown sugar or syrup sometimes, just cause I can.

  9. Okay, you literally got me to fall back on Kaylee's floor laughing at the look on Barkley's face! And that was only the waffle look? Dear Lord, he'd have me out in the back yard throwing the ball for him til my shoulder came out of socket at the sheer amount of cuteness!

    I love the angry mob! I think I just found a birthday present for somebody! Thank you!

  10. "Great for intimidating your action figures and teaching children the concept of pissed off taxpayer."

    Quality snark, there. Wonder if we should send some to our Congresscritters ...

  11. ROFLMAO,
    LOVE that pic of Barkley. Can I have a copy? Lost my Lab Jan before last but she was just like that!!
    LOVE the waffles & bacon too!!!

  12. I KNEW Tofu was an evil mastermind! I KNEW it! Just look at him!

    It's a conspiracy, I'm telling you. I heard on the internetz he sacrifices baby soybeans and dances naked with sprouts under a giant ricepaper owl.

    You can't trust them tofu blocks man. Go Captain Bacon!

  13. Diced chewy bacon bits in a cup of hot melted butter just warm enough to melt the dollops of sour cream strategically placed on the horizontal surfaces lovingly poured on top? Tofu can be used for spackling something in the garage after you're no longer hungry.

    You asked...

    "How to be average sized/non-obese, under 40, and still have a cardiologist!"--A DIY Book Manuscript By Tom, the inventor of BaconSchlager, like Goldschlager but different!

  14. ahhh. .. but for every bacon laden meal there's one that's just roasted veggies or an apple and oatmeal.

    Worth every bit of it.

  15. I use tofu in these instant soup-in-a-bowl meals I get from Trader Joe's (they're made with actual noodles, not rehydrated plastic). However, I would not start the day with tofu. I always start with strong, bold flavors. It sets a better tone. Trader Joe's has an awesome all-natural turkey bacon that's only 30 calories a slice with no nitrates. Awesome.

  16. Those look delicious. I changed the colors on my blog. Let me know if that works out any better. I appreciate the critique. I definitely want to make it easy for people to read my blathering.

    And thank you very much for the compliment.

  17. I hear tofu makes decent bait for some fish. Catfish will eat anything, but I doubt that trout will rise for it.

  18. Thanks Brigid. I was already starving this morning, but this has done me in. The delicious images of bacon have ignited a fire of desire with my taste buds that will have to be satisfied with just plain box pancakes today.

  19. Don't forget that Sneaky Monsieur Tofu has a secret trick he plays on the appetite of the Libidom, and can turn The Amgry Mob into a placid Unitarian Discussion Roundtable...

  20. Looking at Barkley I would guess you ate the bacon and gave him the tofu.

  21. A breakfast like that would have me out of bed before 9 on weekends, I guarantee that.


  22. Look at that face! How can you NOT spoil him?!

    Oh, and we love our waffles here. I use white whole wheat flour (love it!) and applesauce instead of butter/oil. Plates are always clean so apparently no one minds the substitutions!

  23. But vegetables are what my food eats before I eat my food!

  24. My god, I love your dog. You excel at taking the pictures that show who he is.

  25. Good to see Barkley has got that black lab 'oh please give me some, no one ever feeds me' look perfected!

  26. I refuse to live in a world without bacon. And Barkley doesn't seem to keen on the idea either.
