Shortage!

Posted on February 1, 2013 4:00 pm

According to the National Chicken Council, the high cost of corn (spurred by high demand from the ethanol-fuel industry) could result in a chicken wings shortage at Super Bowl time.

Ya know, this wouldn’t be a problem if they’d made the corn into the GOOD kind of alcohol.

    Looks like they’re learning something from the gas industry…Whenever a holiday approaches, claim a shortage and raise the prices.

    My wing consumption goes up if I add good alcohol.

    Your high school chemistry teacher is pounding a desk, with their head. Ethanol is the “good” kind since it’s not as poisonous as methanol, which can be made from corn stalks not corn kernels.

    @3 – No, my chemistry teacher is fine.

    In the punchline I was using the 2nd definition of alcohol: “intoxicating liquor containing alcohol”.

    Somewhere a homeless parasite is thinking of strangling a lying-treehugging-sociopath-massmurderer with a cornstalk and a chicken bone because there will be no hot wings in the dumpster behind the Shakey’s.

    Someone said there was a big sporting event this week. But there can’t be its not October.

    If there is a popular sporting event, maybe the gun stores won’t be so crowded.

    Chicken prices going up because of the corn shortage?

    This is not news.
    Beef and Pork already went up for the same reason.

    How many chickens are on this council and how do we know they aren’t cooking the books?

    People eat chicken wings during the Super Bowl? Is this a national custom that I missed or something?

    Or if they didn’t make corn into fuel that will insure you have a couple of thousand pounds paper weight.

    Let me guess…we are still paying Farm Subsidies to the corn growers as we pay higher prices for everything that depends on corn, yes?

    Yes.
