Global Bacon Shortage 'Unavoidable' Next Year

Postby Willie Kool on Mon Sep 24, 2012 8:04 pm

and don't try telling me that turkey bacon is an applicable replacement. I stocked up on that last week because it was on sale. What a waste.

if you don't like bacon, you're un-American and you should just move to Canada.

I don't get it. Why don't they just feed the pigs more antibiotics and steroids?
