Whichever, neither of these managed to foresee & forecast the demise of their own civilisations never mind forecasting the end of the world.

Imagine a schnitzelless Switzerland! Riots outside restaurants...

According to some interpreting the Mayan calendar we won't get to next year. It all comes to an end on 21st December 2012, so I just have time for one last pig out of birthday cake the day before and then it's goodbye all.

No idea why Mr. Bait decided to groan you for that....!

But given that bacon is now used as a currency, shortages were inevitable.

Thanks for the support, that fly-by groaning really hurt....deep down, left side.
Contemplating whether my hey-day times at EF are coming to and end. (much alike the forthcoming bacon shortage)

Hogwash Monsanto will swoop in and save the day by breeding an abundance of "completely harmless" gm piggies and all will be well in the world.

All hail Monsanto, our great saviours.

Any Kosher bacon butchers in Zürich open after 10pm willing to serve me on a wage less than CHF 250K?

Schnitzels are Austrian, not Swiss!

And real ones are made from veal, so no problem!
