The Apocalypse may be upon us

A world shortage of pork and bacon next year is now unavoidable, says Britain's National Pig Association. But British supermarkets can protect consumers from shortages and steep price rises if they pay Britain's loss-making pig farmers a fair price, to help them remain in production.

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.


Oh sure you say..."but that's in England...that could never happen here...right?"
Are you really going to take the chance?


  1. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

  2. Damn.

    Bacon and eggs is my favorite breakfast!

    And I make one helluva ham and bean soup too.

    I'm sure that Muslims are rejoicing over the shortage of pork. **sigh**
