Not at my house. I buy pork bellies and make it myself, then freeze.

My evil plan is now coming to fruition - Within the year, I will have effectively cornered the highly strategic bacon market!

I don't think you have thought your plan all the way through. The shortage isn't due to butchers, it's due to cost of raising said pork.

I don't know how the rest of the world does it, but when I experience a bacon shortage, I just make a trip to the grocery store. Problem solved.

"Pork has always played an important part in British cuisine"

The words "British" & "cuisine" should never be together like that.

I miss Sizzlean.

Move over bacon, it's time for something leaner!
 
2012-09-12 01:05:01 PM  
Huh, Imagine that. All you fat farks have been stuffing bacon into anything you could. Weaving mats from bacon, wrapping it around stuff it had no place being wrapped around. You never saw the downside, that your wastes would come back to haunt you. Live in the bacon-less hell you deserve.

I brought "chicken" bacon home for the family to try once. There's nothing quite like a five y/o holding a butter-knife to your throat saying "NEVER AGAIN!!".

Blood for bacon!

Who in the fark do we need to invade??!?

And having visited the UK, and experienced a "Bacon Buddy" sandwich several times a week... I can seriously see how raising the price slightly will have tragic consequences. Be strong, all my friends in the Manchester area!!

Hard to justify $9/Lb. for a breakfast protein when I like sausage just fine.

/before you lambast me for spending too much on bacon, sorry, Oscar Mayer doesn't cut it.

Considering I had the best BLT of my life yesterday, I may actually panic a little.

I remember thinking "what kind of sick joke is this?" the first time mom brought home turkey bacon from the supermarket.

You should stop being on the downlow, then you won't have to pay for your breakfast sausage protein every morning

Look at the bright side - in the short term, prices should dip as
farmers sell off their hogs. Throw some in the freezer. Bacon hoarding.

Trolling with a morsel of fat laden truth. Who ever thought a matt of bacon wrapped around a blob of ground mean biproducts would be something fat people would take pictures of to show to other fat people. Crazy world...

What we need is an ambassador of pork. Nevermind.

Yes, if there's one thing Americans are known for it's sharing themselves with the rest of the world. I, for one, can't wait to liberate the shiat out of your bacon.
