Is this the best bacon/mouth lyric ever?


I love bacon and I love lyrics so when the two collide I get a chirp on.

Which is exactly what happened when I listened to the following song by Avi Buffalo (hat tip to the Reverend Marcus Trepanning and DJ NRG Raver by the way).

In it, the singer of Avi Buffalo, a chap called Avi Buffalo, states: "You are tiny and your lips are like little pieces of bacon."

We've all been there but few have had the gumption to put it to music.

I know I haven't.

Nice one, Avi.

Best bacon-related lyric I've heard in ages.

I'd buy you a hat but I'm skint.

Nice vid too.





Have you got a better bacon/mouth lyric? If so, write it on the back of a fifty quid note and send it to me, Keith Burtons, by carrier pigeon. Then rip your spleen out with a dog. I'll have that too.


CAPTION CORRECTION: Big thanks to reader R McKelvey for pointing out that our picture caption (now corrected) was wrong. That bloke with the bacon lips, they exclusively inform the Rake & Herald via Twitter, is not Avi Buffalo but somebody else instead, kindly sending us a photo to prove it. Cheers, R McKelvey. Apologies to all for us dropping a bollock on that one. Bloody hacks, eh?
