A couple weeks ago we heard distressing news about an “unavoidable” worldwide bacon shortage due to shrinking pig herds.

If so, that’s foul.
At least one man did not take the news lightly and began preparing for the shortage (or the “total f***ing bull***t”) by stocking up with as much bacon as humanly possible. That’s step one. That Knight in Shining Bacon? You’re damn right: Famed meat lover Ron Swanson. More of his expert advice on what to do in the event of a bacon shortage in the video below.
