Contest: Grokpose for Bacon

The Prize:

Bacon. It’s meat candy. It’s the real part of a complete breakfast. What’s better than bacon? Six months of bacon. Bacon Freak is a bacon hub, they have bacon wallets and bacon soap, bacon shirts, and bacon gifts. And today they’re offering the contest winner a six month membership to their bacon of the month club. That’s $250 worth of Cajun bacon, jalapeno bacon, sun dried tomato bacon, vanilla bourbon bacon, and an assortment of other blue ribbon varieties. And for the true bacon lovers out there, get all your bacon news at Bacon Today, and form a bacon meet-up at

But Grok can’t live on bacon alone…

To go along with the theme of today’s contest, we’re also throwing in a spear. Cold Steel gave us three Assegai spears, and today we’re giving away the last one. I’ve received a few questions about these spears, so I’ll clarify: Yes, they are real. They aren’t delicate decorations for your mantle. They are weapons used for hunting. Cold Steel sent me a demo video that contained roughly 30 minutes of people throwing these spears through wood, car hoods, Porta-Potties, and large chunks of meat. Win one and you can hunt your own bacon.

The Contest:

Pose like Grok. Take a photo of it. You know Grok, right? Here he is…

Pose like that. Whether in mid air, on the ground, hanging from the underside of a stairwell, or lying on the dirt. If you’re body roughly matches the positioning of Grok, you’re qualified. If you’ve got a spear, awesome. If you have some other representation of a spear, that’s fine too. If you’ve got an “air spear,” that’s acceptable as well. Creativity is entirely allowed. Once you’ve figured out how to do it, get someone to take a picture of you in your Grokpose, and email it to me.

IMPORTANT: You must include “Grokpose Submission” in the subject heading of your email or your entry won’t count.

The Deadline:

Sept 23, midnight PST. You’ve got one week.

Who is Eligible:

Anyone can enter, though (like all other consumable prizes) international winners will win a substitute prize of equal value.

How a Winner is Chosen:

A random drawing will be held among all entrants who submit adequate photos.

Fine Print:

MDA reserves the right to publish all submitted material.

  1. ok, this is just a way too fun idea! Well, bacon is marvelous incentive isn’t it!

  2. Phew! I thought it said, “If your body roughly matches the conditioning of Grok” — um, that rules me out! But then I saw that it really says “positioning”. Well, that I can do!

    Anything for bacon . . .

  3. All that bacon….MMM…

    Better go find that loin cloth for the picture. And a wig for that Grok hair since I just got a hair cut! Can’t wait to see those pictures.


  4. 6 months of bacon?!? this incentive is too good to pass up!

  5. Here’s my “speed bacon” breakfast trick: One day or more before, cut up 1 pound or so of cold bacon into 1/2 or smaller chunks. Place it in your small crock pot on high. You don’t need to add anything.

    Run one hour on high, then turn down to low (not the keep warm setting, the low cook setting) for four or five hours. Turn off. Pack your hot bacon and its grease into wide mouth canning jars and cover. Let cool and refrigerate.

    Now, when you get up and you want bacon with your eggs, but don’t want to spend the time to cook it, you just open that jar, dig out a hunk of perfectly cooked bacon and grease, melt it in your pan and you are good to go. If you have previously cleaned, chopped and frozen some green onions and kept them in a freezer bag, you can toss in a handful of those, too. Speed bacon!

    OK, now go pose like Grok and get a picture.

  6. Heheheheheh… I’ve been wanting to do one like this since I got my “Grok On” t-shirt anyway, and now I’ve got a good excuse! 🙂 I’ve already got a Cold Steel spear (two, actually, not that I couldn’t use another one… *grin*), so that’ll definitely be featured in the pic, as well! Now, which spear to use? The boar spear, or the assegai…? Decisions, decisions! 😀

  7. Pose like Grok??? Me? A middle aged woman that does not look like Mark Sisson’s wife, let me tell you! So I’ll pass on this one unless I can submit my hubby who is a real caveman. He just hunted and killed an elk this morning with a bow. Been cleaning our winter’s meat all day. Grunt.

  8. Do I have to be in the picture? My primal kids are in the back yard at this moment working out the details. I mentioned free bacon and they were all over it! 🙂

  9. Do a video search for ‘cape buffalo spear’ and prepare to be amazed.

    1. I love bacon and would love to win six months worth of bacon!! The most bacon I have had in my house at one time is 4lbs!! ANd it went way too fast
