And you know it's a real problem, because the Guvment is already denying it.
Shoppers are being limited to a mere 4 twenty-pound bags of rice per visit. Of course this limitation doesn't apply to stores in Idaho and New Mexico. Those sonsabitches Idaohoans (Ida-hoes? Idahites?) get their rice and Famous Potatoes. Double starches! Oh, the humanity. Who knows why the New Mexi-cats can get all the rice they want?
Yes, this is what passes for news nowadays. I'm sure that Sam's Club didn't just tip off CNN about the Rice Rationing so they could get some free publicity.
Lest you think this doesn't impact you, be aware of the following very critical things that will be impacted by the Global Rice Crisis. (yes, if I had an echo effect, it'd be here)
- the University
- overwrought books about Vampires
- chicken & rice casseroles (and who wants just chicken casseroles?)
- crummy paper
- pudding (who knew?)
There are probably even more, but I don't have time for these kind of shenanigans because I've got to send a hysterical letter to the USA Rice Federation because I can't possibly exist on only 80 pounds of rice.
