Ron Charles on His T-Shirt Peddling Back-Up Plan

If the art of book reviewing ever fades away, Washington Post fiction editor Ron Charles has a back-up plan. The star of the Totally Hip Book Reviewer video embedded above will become a “bacon hat t-shirt” peddler.

In an Armchair/Shotgun interview, Charles explained: “Those bacon-hat t-shirts — and my Beanie Baby collection — are my Plan B when this whole journalism thing finally collapses. I’ve got 10,000 in a warehouse in Rockville. I’m taking orders now.”

The bacon hat originated in Charles’ video about Danielle Evans’ short story collection, Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self. It’s safe to assume that he drew inspiration from Lady Gaga’s meat dress. In his his recent holiday gift guide video, Charles introduced a t-shirt of himself wearing the bacon hat. (Via FishbowlNY)
