Ladies and gentlemen, our country may be facing a bacon shortage.
A virus is spreading through pig farms across the country killing millions of pigs. The virus is called porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) and little is known about how to stop it.
What does this mean for bacon? Bacon is about to get even more expensive.
What does this mean for bacon lovers?

Too bad I didn't stock up on bacon. I may have to go baconless in this so called bacon shortage.— Timothy Johnson (@AlphaTiem) April 13, 2014

Without real bacon, all we'll be left with are millions of bacon memes.
Apparently there are people who are "over" bacon.
The internet ruined bacon and bacon ruined the internet.— Giovanni Giorgio (@GiovanniGiorgio) April 12, 2014
Just wait until the shortage is real.
