Anyone else thinking this is worse than we first expected!!!




Ebola is threatening much of the world’s chocolate supply.
Ivory Coast, the world’s largest producer of cacao, the raw ingredient in M&M’s, Butterfingers and Snickers Bars, has shut down its borders with Liberia and Guinea, putting a major crimp on the workforce needed to pick the beans that end up in chocolate bars and other treats just as the harvest season begins.

As soon as it threatens coffee I demand we deploy 300,000 troops... Anything less and I'll insist we impeach the treasonous bastage.

If ISIS interrupts the flow of chocolate ... we won't be marching on DC ... the women of the world will take out ISIS ourselves. Screw the "troops on the ground" and the "air strikes".
