The brilliant people at Oscar Mayer have out-brillianted themselves.

They figured the one sure way to get people out of bed in the morning is with the sound - and smell - of bacon cooking. Because if there is one thing Americans love more than sleep, it's bacon.

Bacon Alarm Clock

They've invented a small device that plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone and interacts with their free bacon-sound alarm clock app.

When your alarm goes off, you'll not only hear bacon sizzling, you'll also smell it. With your nose! For real!

Unfortunately for us, you cannot buy this amazing device. You have to go to their new Wake Up And Smell The Bacon website between now and April 4, 2014 and sign up for a chance to receive one.

(To research this post I obviously had to apply. I'm sad to report I didn't win one... yet. Although I swear I can already smell bacon cooking after writing the word "bacon" so many times.)

Upskirt photos are legal, a Massachusetts court actually ruled this week ... at least until the indignant state legislature now passes a bill outlawing them.

Lawmakers and officials widely criticized the ruling and spoke of criminal penalties for offenders, who they called “peeping Toms” empowered by technology.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled on a Boston-based case in which a man took upskirt pics of female straphangers riding the subway.

It found that a Massachusetts law criminalizing the covert photographing of nude or partly nude people does not apply to “upskirting,” for one simple reason:

The photographed women are wearing clothing.

This is true of countless celebrity pics (see Kate Middleton, below), but does that mean it should be legal? This has become a surprisingly heated debate.

Belle Knox, an 18-year-old Duke University student, is suddenly the most popular freshman girl in the history of college after revealing her side job.

She's just a porn star on the side to pay those stiff tuition bills. No big deal.

Duke Porn Star Belle Knox
Belle Knox, a.k.a. the "Duke porn star," gets her financial aid in the sack.

“I really enjoy sex, and I’ve always loved watching porn, so it just seemed like I could pay my way through college doing something I really love doing,” Knox says.

The women’s studies and sociology major told the N.Y. Daily News that her parents were supposed to pay for school, which costs $47,000 a year.

“I didn’t feel like I had a lot of options,” she said, then it hit her.

“I literally just Googled, 'how to be a porn star.’ It came up with all these modeling agencies, and I literally just sent in my pictures and my height and weight.”
