The Great U.S. Rice Famine of 08

.........or otherwise known as the year that americans ate more rice than they ever have before.  Seriously folks,  I'm at home minding my own business and decide I'd like to make a nice curry dish.  I go to the store to buy some rice, and the rice shelf is bare not just in Wal-Mart but in every other store. 

Despite the experts saying there is no rice shortage in the U.S., people continue to hoard rice by the 20 lb bag.  The funny thing is, I bet most of these people only rarely eat rice.   Alot of people have bought more rice than they will ever be able to eat.  How so many people can be influenced by the media is beyond me.  The media speaks and causes a little apprehension and all the rice magically disappears from the shelves.  I hope they find the guy on the national rice counsel that started this rumor. 

Did you hear?  There's a problem with the potato crop.  A shortage is predicted by mid summer.  .............Come on, admit it.  I made you at least a little nervous. :-)

    Hmm... A nice curry dish sounds good right about now... As usual it's dinner time and I haven't given one thought as to what to make. The power of words, huh? Unseeming, subliminal suggestion. Hope their's rice in my pantry or we'll just have cold cereal.
