While Valentine’s Day is somewhat of a controversial subject, the world’s love for bacon isn’t. We all love crispy, greasy bacon.

The thing about love, though, is it can alter our judgement and inspiring us to make bad decisions.

One such poor decision is the bacon rose, a trend that has quietly sprung up in the last few years. Instead of getting roses like a classy gentleman or woman, you buy a bouquet of bacon buds. It can get a bit pricey when ordered from a professional bacon rose maker, so bacon enthusiasts are trying their hand at DIY bouquets.

The Instagrams chronicling sad attempts at bacon rose making are hilarious and often horrifying. The tags #baconbouquet and #baconrose reveal laughable burnt bacon shapes and soggy gray globs on sticks.
