I Can’t Live in a World Without Bacon!
Every day it's a challenge going through the headlines in the morning paper. Between politicians, replacement refs, reality TV, and inflation it's enough to make you want to start drinking with breakfast !
But one recent headline nearly drove me to tears:
WORLD SHORTAGE OF BACON NOW UNAVOIDABLE
It seems pig farmers have been plunged into loss by high pig-feed costs, caused by the global failure of maize and soya harvests. Throw in droughts in North America and Russia and we've got ourselves a problem.
There's a lot I can live without, but bacon is NOT one of them! From the bacon on my cheeseburger to the baco bits on my salad, even the bacon I had in an ice cream sundae recently, I gotta have it!
I have been so proud to say that I was alive when microwave bacon was first introduced, taking the mess and time out of preparing one of my favorite things. I don't want my time on this earth to now be marred by enduring the globe's first bacon shortage.
I couldn't possibly be overreacting could I?
