Chocolate + Bacon = Crafts?

It is that time of year . . . time for the Minnesota State Fair . . . the place where you can get just about any food you like on a stick, and try some other unique creations, one of them being chocolate covered bacon.

How does this all tie into a crafting blog you ask? Well, recently Conan O’Brien, host of the Tonight Show, made a comment saying that he would attend the Minnesota State Fair if he was sent his body weight in chocolate covered bacon. Be careful what you ask for Conan! What he got was a 200 pound white chocolate bust of himself, with bacon for the hair.



The bust looks so much like Conan it is amazing, and the woman who carved it, Linda Christensen, is a true crafter in my opinion. Linda is the woman who has been carving the bust of “Princess Kay of the Milky Way” which will be on display in the dairy building during the Minnesota State Fair, for the past 34 years.
