Bacon Shortage 'Aporkalypse' Theoretically Possible, But Highly Unlikely, Given Basic Economics

Business  (tags: world, consumers, environment, farming, marketing )

- 1156 days ago -
America -- nay, the entire world -- went hog wild this week when a report out of England predicted a "global bacon shortage" in 2013. Swinophiles cleared hoarding space in their freezers and eating-contest organizers canceled bacon-based events.

I pray the bacon shortage never ends and that the bacon eaters lose interest in eating bacon all together and will start fighting to Save the pigs!!

the world as it is today: more likely that a few millions run out of bread (or water) than that the top a$$holes run out of nightingales' tongues in aspic (and champagne). Maybe make that billions.

Very interesting news. I think it's great that this may happen. The less high fat junk food that's available, the better for one's health and waistline.

Just one more thing vegetarians don't have to worry about.

Noted, what was funny is that all pork products will suffer the same fate but wasn't misreported.

Yeah for the pigs; 4 legged kind, that is. It is horrific how animals are treated for food. Some ignornant creep came up with the idea of gestation crates (perhaps he is related to some of the nut cases in the US Congress?). So on with the pork shortage--cheers.

who wants to eat that nitrate loaded crap anyhow? Bacon always looked like solidified pus. As appealing as an unpopped pimple.

Wow Gloria, that doesn't sound like my favorite Farmers Bacon!
