Don't tell the hipsters a global bacon shortage is 'unavoidable'9/25/2012
File this one under "Nooooooo!" A pig farmers' association in the U.K. has said it is now "unavoidable" that a global bacon shortage is on the horizon. The cost of pig feed has skyrocketed due to poor grain harvests, according to the British National Pig Association, and pig herds across Europe are declining precipitously. Meanwhile, livestock farmers in the U.S. are struggling keep both their pigs and their cows fed, with one guy resorting to feeding his cattle gummy worms. This would be the time to start stockpiling those Oscar Mayer frozen bacon strips. [Source]
