Maybe the Mayans saw this coming in their end of the world
prophesies. Those who pray at the temple of bacon could see their world
crumbling to bacon bits this winter.



A world shortage of pork and bacon next year is “now unavoidable,” a British industry group said in a press release.



Britain's National Pig Association (NPA) says that pig herds in Europe
are shrinking. As if that isn’t bad enough, this trend is “being
mirrored around the world,” the group says in the release. Drought
conditions, especially in the U.S. and Russia, have taken a toll on the
price of the grain crops used for animal feed, and world food prices are
expected to reach record highs in 2013.



The number of slaughtered pigs could drop by as much as 10 percent in
the second half of next year, the NPA says. This would double the price
of European pork and pork products.

    Pork has already tripled in price because of obamaflation and it has nothing to do with a shortage. Beef is 3 times as high as pork for the same reason. Gasoline and everything else is the same way. the only reason the lame stream media is making such a big issue of it, is to try to take the blame off of obamaflation and the majority of liberals will believe it.

    Eat Turkey Bacon. It's not as good but it does have less fat.
