It's true - there is a bacon shortage on the way at least in England where they are already facing a shortage of pork due to a dry summer and a lack of grains to use for feed. Will this problem reach us in the United States?

 

Sadly - yes. Bacon has become quite popular in the past few years, not that it ever wasn't popular. News of this possible shortage brings up several questions. How will all of the new found bacon fans survive? Can the president declare an emergency? Are the Mayans right?

The shortage is based on a spike in the price of feed for the swine after droughts in Russia and the US caused the supply of food for pigs to decline.

Iam also worried because have a bacon tattoo. If the world's bacon vanishes, I may have to wear long sleeves to prevent anyone from getting... hungry.
