In the spirit of the health-focused legislative session: A New York Times report on a recipe sweeping the Internet. You take two pounds of bacon and use it to lace up a torpedo-shaped gut bomb stuffed with two pounds of sausage. It's slathered with BBQ sauce and smoked.

I think a dollar tax for each one of these "Bacon Explosions" sold in Arkansas would be about right. Proceeds to UAMS heart clinic, naturally. Would Petit Jean Meats lobby against it?
