PANIC & STOCKPILE: Global Bacon Shortage Imminent

September 25, 2012


According to a recent report from the U.K.'s National Pig Association, Britain is experiencing a shortage of pork products because swine is getting too expensive to raise and farmers are cutting their herd size, and apparently the whole world is experiencing the same. Also, are groups of pigs really called a herd? "No, they're called you and your friends." Oh, GOOD ONE.

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. All main European pig-producing countries report shrinking sow herds.

It's believed that bacon prices will rise drastically, possibly even to the point where you're not adding it TO ALL SIX MEALS OF THE DAY. "But I like it!" *patting belly* I know you do.

Thanks to h3llbring3r and Kimukku, who just bought one of those big chest freezers your friend's family had in their garage and have already started stockpiling.

    All I have to say is FUCK YOU EPIC MEAL TIME!!!! I mean yeah it's a funny web show but I think they have more to do with a bacon shortage than high priced feed. Save some for the rest of us!!!

    In the land of the pork-deprived, the long pig reigns supreme.

    Long pig meat should be legalised.

    Just wrong guys.

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    so you are saying I should start raising pigs and selling them on the black market?

  • I can already see a Midnight Express image of you taping strips of bacon under your clothes ;)
