If you don't believe me, check out this apocalyptic headline from Leister:
Britain facing disastrous biscuit shortage
(Pro-tip: In England, biscuits are basically shitty cookies).
The article claims the shortage is coming from a flood last year that closed down United Biscuit!
Which is awesome, but doesn't really explain anything.
Was there a biscuit monopoly in the UK?
Has Big Biscuit blocked the importation of foreign biscuits (let them eat Oreos!!)?
Has Big Biscuit's biscuit advertising been so powerful that the English are brainwashed into only eating United Biscuit biscuits?
Has the British biscuit regulator stepped in and imposed biscuit price controls so the biscuit market is no longer clearing?
I guess the only thing we know for sure is that it's sticky wickets for lovely biscuits in Albion!
