Food Rationing In America


It begins.

Remember when I told you to PACK YOUR RICE?

Well, it's getting too expensive to pack soon.

It's only six billion hungry people. How much trouble can they make, anyway? Will cappuccino service be interrupted? Does this mean we may have to switch to home brands for a while at the supermarket? We could always drive to places with cheaper prices somewhere, except for the roads being clogged with all those angry starving zombie-types and gas priced too high to afford.

It's exciting and hope-inspiring to see how the public dealt with a minor 'inconvenience' level food shortage at costco...(rolls eyes)... It doesn't take much imagination to see how quickly things will turn violent in the american supermarkets. These kids have never in their life, NOT gotten everything they wanted. I remember when fist-fights were started over a shortage of 'elmo' children's toys back in the late 90's.

Fortunately for me, when taxes come back this next week, I'll be in a position to get a full year's food supply for me and my wife and lock it up for the rainy days soon to come.

Fat years. Lean years. Positively biblical. Joseph has the Egyptians store grain. Maybe we should have planned ahead better.
