Have you ever eaten strip after strip of hot, crispy bacon like it was your job? Now it actually can be your job—for one day.

Farmer Boys, a restaurant chain popular on the West Coast, is searching for its first-ever bacon intern to spend eight hours eating bacon products. The intern will sample Farmer Boys menu items like the Bacon Boy Cheeseburger and the Farmer's Chopped Cobb Salad, as well as foods that haven't hit the menu yet, according to a press release. The intern's job, after pigging out, is to rate each strip of bacon for flavor, thickness, and crispiness. 

“At Farmer Boys, we’re firm believers in customer feedback and listening to our guests, and we felt that hiring our first ever Bacon Intern would add another layer to that philosophy and help make our food as pork-tacular as it can be,” said Larry Rusinko, vice president and chief marketing officer of Farmer Boys, in a press release. 

Once the eight-hour day of bacon eating is done, the intern will be paid $1,000. That's $125 per hour—not a bad day's pay.

For anyone 18 years or older who wants a shot at eating free bacon and pocketing one grand, you must post a photo or video on Instagram explaining why you would make the best bacon intern. Be sure to tag @FarmerBoysFood and use #FarmerBoysBaconIntern in the caption—both are required! Entries must be posted by August 20, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. The lucky winner will be announced August 27. Read the complete rules here.

Here's hoping you get the chance to hog alllll the bacon!
