    Eggo scalper here, I've cleared out my local store's freezers and I'm passing on the deals to you. Only $10 per box for regular waffles and $15 for flavored ones - discounts if you buy multiples. I can also score some Special K and syrup - $20 each. PM me if interested.

    Years from now, when someone asks, "Where were you during the Great Eggo Famine?", you can say you were on TFW

    Don't worry, we at the eggo corporation are aware of the eggo shortages faced by many of our customers, and in response have prepared a very special product for immediate release.

    Soylent Eggos will pack the same deliciousness you've come to expect along with an extra dose of protein, into what is sure to become a breakfast hit!

    I don't see what the hang up is about eating people. We're going to run out of room for cemeteries eventually. Heck, we're already digging cemeteries up in WI to make room for shopping malls.

    Now I'm not advocating eating old people. That'd be gross.

    I think its interesting to see the kinds of temporary lapses in production/supply that an environmental (natural or not) incident can cause. You know, things like a shipment of collectible pirate card game cards being held up due to pirate attack.

    Has there been any other shortages of products made in Atlanta in the news, or were Eggos the only one weird enough to make the news?

    edit: is there no code for Strikethrough here, or am I just a dullard, unable to figure it out?

    I saw the article about this Eggo shortage on Yahoo and my first reaction was "WTF?"


    Eh, it's been years since I last had Eggos -- I used to like the ones with the chocolate chips in them -- so I'm not too concerned about this. Besides, I'm not too big on eating breakfast anyways... might have the occasional breakfast sandwich, pop tart or bowl of cereal, but that's about it.
