A Dominican heart, but Antonian arteries

A Friday in Lent isn't the best time for this, but I did want to point out that Archie McPhee sells a statuette of St. Anthony under the (unofficial) title of Patron Saint of Bacon.

The invocation they provide "to assist with the enjoyment of quality bacon" doesn't seem to be approved for liturgical use:
O wonderous St. Anthony, please bless me with an abundance of quality bacon and grant me the patience and timing to properly fry each glorious strip.
