It turns out there is such a thing as too much bacon, much to the chagrin of Ron Swanson.

An unsuspecting Swede found that out the hard way 7 a.m. Thursday after a whopping 600 kgs —that’s 1,322 pounds — tumbled from a trolley in the meatpacking district onto one early morning commuter.

“It’s a rather unusual accident, you might say,” police spokesperson Peter Adlersson told Sweden’s The Local.

The man sustained minor back injuries. His cholesterol levels are unknown.
