Look out, bad guys: this rocket launcher is made of bacon

Normally, bacon is for eating. Not so with the BA-Zooka, which is a rocket launcher made out of bacon, capable of launching a sausage at either a good friend or mortal enemy, depending on whether or not their mouth is open.

Measuring 36-inches long and made up of a whopping 15 pounds of bacon, this insane piece of weaponry was created in honor of Bacon Day, a holiday I did not know existed but I know celebrate religiously. It's powered by 8 AA batteries, which doesn't seem like a lot of juice for a rocket launcher. But then I suppose it also has the natural energy of the bacon helping it out. Take notes, DARPA!
