Big Chicken Company Increases Profit 718%, Blames It On Bird Flu

In yet another case of “Did they really say that?”, Cal-Maine, which has 20% of the US egg market, outlines the real cause of egg-flation–bird flu. Said CEO Sherman Miller: the profits were caused by “the ongoing epidemic of highly pathogenic avian influenza which has significantly reduced the nation’s egg-laying capacity.” By 718%? Not likely.

If not, then the real cause? Good old fashioned corporate America ripping off customers. After that comes the BS PR campaign that no one believes. This one is so stupid it’s amazing that the news industry even bothered to report it.

The answer is, as usual, to take the means of production into your own hands. Buy some chickens, get a coop, and whip inflation now. As well as some pigs of the capitalist variety.
