Group Warns Of Looming World Wide Bacon Shortage
Michael Berry ^ | 9.25.2012 | Michael Berry

he world’s most horrifying crisis is not the Middle East uprisings, nor is it the disastrous NFL replacement referee situation. It is something much, much more dire.

According to Britain’s National Pig Association, an industry group that The Daily Caller did not make up out of thin air, a global bacon shortage is nigh. In a statement released last week, the association said that “[a] world shortage of pork and bacon next year is now unavoidable.”

New data shows the European Union pig herd is declining at a significant rate, and this is a trend that is being mirrored around the world. Pig farmers have been plunged into loss by high pig-feed costs, caused by the global failure of maize and soya harvests.

Apparently, a lack of rain throughout the United States and Russia has caused a shortage of corn and soy crops, which is what pigs — that eventually turn into delicious strips of succulent bacon — eat, the Financial Times reports.

Pigs will also eat islamofascists if you chop them up a little before you throw them into the trough. They have to be really hungry tho’ to get past the stench.

I think Obama is giving the Islamists the middle East. I think we better relocate the Jews. How about Massachusetts?

Last week I found bacon at a much higher price than my previous purchases. Was able to economize by picking up the house brand 2 lb package. It’s been good.

As did I....I was able to purchase said bacon, by selling an old ferral mouser hangabout, and a basket case ‘81 FXWG. ;-)

The way prices are going, bacon will be eaten by those who own the future.

No problem. Plenty of Democrats to make up the difference.

I was watching “How It’s Made” on Discovery Channel.

They had a segment on how pork bellies are processed into packaged bacon - quite an automated process.

My 5 yr old grandson astutely asked “grandpa, how do they get the bacon off the pigs?”

Eat more bacon, but be careful, bacon is a dangerous weapon and you can be arrested and lose your liberty if you have some bacon and a specially-protected minority group member sees it and yells and moans to the police.
