Public Service Announcement:

From John Lotkin of The Merman's Mark




Awful news today, people. Seriously awful news. An epic chocolate shortage is on the rise. 

Apparently demand is up and production down, resulting in an increasing deficit of chocolatey goodness. "We're running out of chocolate," Smithsonian writes, "and it's only predicted to get worse."  The culprits behind lowered production: an evil disease called frosty pod and global warming. 

My brownies... all my beautiful brownies...You'll have to read the rest for yourself here. I need a tissue.
