‘The Food Supply Is Broken’

Producers warn America is facing a ‘traditional protein’ shortage in Coronavirus era and that alternative sources may need to be used.

Breitbart–Toilet paper was the first product to disappear from retailers’ shelves at the start of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States, but the nation’s meat and poultry producers warn the strain on the supply chain could result in shortages and cost increases.

“The food supply chain is breaking,” John Tyson, chairman of Tyson Foods Inc., the largest U.S. meat producer, wrote in a blog posted on the company’s website:

This means one thing – the food supply chain is vulnerable. As pork, beef and chicken plants are being forced to close, even for short periods of time, millions of pounds of meat will disappear from the supply chain.

Michigan’s Governor Grabs Deerfield’s Annual Testicle Festival By The Balls

Did You Know That There’s a ‘Testicle Festival’ in Michigan? And Yes, It’s Canceled

Thanks, Governor Whitmer. You squeeze the life out of fun. First no bull seeds, then no veggie seeds at the Home Depot.

The 9th annual Testicle Festival in Deerfield, Michigan (which is about 35 miles south of Ann Arbor), which was supposed to take place over this past weekend, was canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

This may surprise you but this post isn’t about coronavirus – we NEED to talk about the festival itself.

It’s held at the Deerfield American Legion and usually attracts up to 2,000 visitors. They spend about 12 hours eating…wait for it…fried bull testicles.

The festival has been postponed until May 9th and the testicles are being frozen until then.
