Leggo my eggo!

February 4, 2010

Kellogg’s Company stock dropped sharply today as production problems at their Eggo plants in Georgia and Tennessee “caused a waffle shortage.”

The Company said the waffle shortage lowered the company’s fourth-quarter sales by 2 percent, and the stock is down 5%. See: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601103&sid=aqjyWpquFFmI

Rocky noticed the signs at his local grocery store that apologized for the Eggo shortage. Luckily, as part of his Y2K disaster preparation, Rocky kept a stockpile of waffles and Tang in his generator-powered underground bunker.

He’s currently checking the prices on Ebay to see whether he can unload his waffles at a profit.

A representative of the National Waffle Association, (yes, it exists), declined to comment on Rocky’s arbitrage activities.

[Disclosure: Trophy Wife is not fond of frozen waffles for breakfast. She’s strictly a fresh banana and Special-K kind of gal.]

    National Waffle Association. Isn’t Charleton Heston the head of that? (Though I never could figure out why Michael Moore went after him for that in Bowling for Columbine. Waffles don’t kill people. Well, a lot of waffles do. Maybe that was it …)

    The market analogy is “Leggo my Ego”

    Here the only waffles we see are politicians waffling in parliament – (;
