Hershey workers are on strike!
Mass panic erupts. People run out into the streets screaming. Tables are overturned. Cars are set on fire. Chocolate stores are looted. Candy is stolen from babies. A chocolate addict falls to his knees in the middle of the street and screams “My God! Why have you forsaken us!”
Okay, okay, maybe that’s a bit too much panic. Tone it down a little. Put the car fires out. Lower the decible level of your screams a bit. There we go.
Hersey claims to have built up its inventory before the strike, but how much time do we have before it runs out? While Bush is goofing around sercuring oil reserves with the Saudi crown, who is watching America’s vital chocolate reserves?
We’ll probably make it through this crisis. But just in case, I’m retiring to my underground bunker with a year’s supply of chocolate bars and M&Ms until this whole thing blows over.
