Armed thugs shot up a pro-democracy rally in Venezuela, war is still waging in Iraq, Darfur is still Darfurish, and Dog the Bounty Hunter cries a lot, but the real tragedy unfolded itself today.
Beer prices might escalate. Yes folks while you're feeling the pinch at the gas pump, grocery store, and strip club (not that I would know anything about that) you may have to dish out more dough for the brewed goodness. Due to low supply of ingredients prices will rise making it less affordable to consume a tasty stout.
I for one will not stand for it. Isn't there a country we could bomb to take care of this? Fine go ahead and raise the price of oil, but for the love of god don't touch my beer. I should form an OPEC of brewers. Controlling all supply we will rule the world.
If lap dances are next for a price increase I believe open revolt will be the only logical solution to our economic ills.

Forget gas prices: Beer is going up
