Today we learned that in the 1930s some people entertained large crowds by skating in giant frying pans with slabs of bacon on their feet. It may not be the most efficient way to fry bacon for a big group of people, but it sure is novel.

We aren’t aware of any contemporary bacon skaters, so this seems to have been a fleeting craze, which is a shame. Professional Bacon Skater would look awesome on a résumé.
