2011 HORROR ADVENT CALENDAR – DAY #4: The Rising Cost of Bacon

Wallet Bacon

Jewish and Muslim friends… please look away for a moment.

On this Sunday morning when I usually make a large breakfast for everyone in the house, of course I think about bacon.  Well, let’s be honest, I think about bacon a lot.  Like… a lot.  It’s a problem actually.  So when I’ve slowly noticed the prices of my beloved salted pork almost double in the past few years, this is when the problems with the economy really punched me the in gut.  Sure, people are losing their jobs and their homes and everything… but paying $8 for a pound of bacon?  That’s where I draw the line.

If this isn’t one of the most horrifying situations this year, then I honestly don’t know what is.

Sigh… bacon.
