Viral video virtuosos Rhett & Link (of “T-shirt War” stardom) have teamed up with Denny’s for their latest production Bacon Makes Everything Better. The video hits all the marks of a viral smash for the schadenfreude- and bacon-prone masses. In it, “The Bacon Diva” sings R&B narration of YouTube “fail” videos such as a kid jumping off a metal swing only to get hit moments later by the swaying seat and the ridicule of his peers. The victim then gets some condolence with the chorus “bacon makes everything better.” You can watch more (and find an offer for free bacon) on the restaurant’s site.

File this in the “one egg to rule them all” folder: Denny’s has officially unveiled a brand new menu based on Peter Jackson’s forthcoming Hobbit
trilogy. On the docket? The Shire Sausage Skillet, Frodo’s Pot Roast and, of course, Gandalf’s Gobble Melt. Gandalf always seemed like he’d be into turkey melts. Wait, did they even have turkeys in Middle Earth?
The menu goes on sale on November 6th, a full month before The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters. You can spend those weeks scarfing down Bilbo’s Berry Smoothie and the inexplicably named Radagast’s Red Velvet Pancake Puppies. Somewhere, somehow, Tolkien is completely confused but pleasantly full.
