Bacon shortage worldwide 'unavoidable' UK pig group says

 

 

By Tiffany Hsu, KTUU

Might want to get your fill of ham this year, because "a world shortage of pork and bacon next year is now unavoidable," according to an industry trade group.

Blame the drought conditions that blazed through the corn and soybean crop this year. Less feed led to herds declining across the European Union "at a significant rate," according to the National Pig Association in Britain.

And the trend "is being mirrored around the world," according to a release. The announcement was first reported in the Financial Times.

In the second half of next year, the number of slaughtered pigs could fall 10%, doubling the price of European pork, according to the release.

The trade group urged supermarkets to pay pig farmers a fair price for the meat to help cover the drought-related losses.

In U.S. warehouses, pork supply soared to a record last month, rising 31% to 580.8 million pounds at the end of August from a year earlier, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The surge came as farmers scaled down their herds as feeding the animals became increasingly expensive.

That's it. 3/4 of you fuckers are converting to Islam or Judaism. I'm generally a nice guy, so I'll let you choose. But that's what it's gotta be.

 

The Second Amendment to the BP Constitution very clearly states, "A well regulated Saturday breakfast being necessary to the happiness of Me, the right of the people to keep and bear bacon shall not be infringed."

Oh fuck this is bad.

 

Bacon and avocado, that's my favourite sandwich. Little bit of lemon juice on the avo, bit of A1 Bold & Spicy on the bacon.

Yep, saw one at the aforementioned Korean grocery a beef version of the samgyupsal. It was identified as beef because there was a cartoon cow sticker on the package. :D Same thing for the pork samgyupsal, a cartoon pig sticker on the packaging. :D

I think it is hilarious.... You do realize that there is Turkey and Beef bacon, and both taste better and many are kosher.... ;)

 

Ahhh, good to see that cultural Marxism has even seeped into the breakfast table.

 

It's all relativism. "Turkey bacon is as good as bacon. . . Socialism is as good as Capitalism. . . "

 

So yes, what I am saying is you are a Godless communist heathen.

This is, by far, the most horrible thing I have ever read on Tank Net. No amount of Gavin talk, communism, islamic extremists or Hillary Clinton pictures will ever change that.

You are welcome to all the lesser bacon you want.

I am happy to sacrifice bacon to keep the bellota flowing.

 

The beauty of it is that you don't have to :) Bacon (or any other pork belly product) from Iberico pigs eating bellota is incredible.

 

A really good jabugo is all I want for my last meal.

Miracle Whip is as good as real mayonnaise. turkey dogs are as good as all beef hotdogs, margarine is as good as butter, copper bullets are as good as jacketed lead bullets...
