All you have to do is wrap the bacon in tin foil, tie it around the barrel of your Rheinmetall MG 3, and fire off about 150 rounds (250 if you like it crispy).

Wouldn't it be simpler just to use the machine gun to "entice" your next-door neighbor into cooking your bacon for you using more conventional utensils?

I mean, yeah, it might only work once. Or at least until law enforcement intervened. But starting the next morning the jail-house kitchen would be cooking bacon for you - for free!

A real "Boy Scout" would cook the bacon in the paper bag the bullets came in.

Having cooked it, would there be anyone left alive to eat it?
