Google recently launched Bacon Number, a fun little game where you can search any actor’s name into it’s search bar and WHAM you get their Bacon Number, the degree in which said person is connected to the actor Kevin Bacon.
So, being the ULTRA famous professional that we are, we took a pretty confident stab at it, and whadya know: Sharpie comes up with nothing! Nada! Zilch! HOW is this even possible?! We are a revered actor-ess (oh, yes, we are THAT good and can play all parts), we have walked the red carpets, waved to the masses, dressed up and photographed with the stars and yet, still no recognition for the brilliant role we play in Hollywood!
It is a travesty, I tell you, A TRAVESTY! Snookie even had a Bacon Number, for goodness sake!
So, Google, consider this our official grievance. We are calling foul and proclaiming to the world that we are indeed pretty darn connected to Mr. Bacon…

Ready to Ink it Pink this October alongside your favorite celebrities, sports superstars and fellow Sharpie lovers?! This month we are making pink the new black in the autograph world as we kick off our annual “Ink It Pink” campaign to help fight breast cancer.
We are challenging celebrities, our incredible fans and YOU to ink it pink for the cause. For every pink autograph submitted to www.sharpie.com during the month of October, we will donate $1* to City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading cancer research, treatment and education centers.
The movement is already underway as rock star, Grace Potter from Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, has already signed on to the Ink It Pink effort! Potter helped kick-off the campaign Saturday, September 24, during her band’s concert in New York City’s Central Park where she inked pink autographs for fans and encouraged them to do the same and send them over to sharpie.com!
You may remember last year was a HUGE success as hundreds of A-listers, from Hollywood movie legends and hall-of-fame athletes to revered rocks stars and respected media icons, lent their signatures to the effort.(Miley Cyrus’ Ink it Pink video is STILL our highest viewed on the Sharpie YouTube channel!)
Well this year is no different! The pink signatures have already started rolling in, including Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars and 19-time Olympic medalist, Michael Phelps, and you can help, too!
