The bacon shortage is coming!

That's according to a recent press release from the U.K.'s National Pig Association, which warns that the pork shortage in Great Britain may soon grow into a worldwide issue.

According to the association, a shortage of bacon is now unavoidable -- an opinion mirrored by a Financial Times report that blames droughts in North America and Russia for the looming deficit, which will also include price hikes.

In short, it's a foodie's worst nightmare. Kiss those BLTs and maple bacon ice cream treats goodbye.

But there is some good news. While there may be a bacon shortage at the local supermarket, there will never be a shortage on the Internet.

Here's a slideshow of some of the best bacon-themed GIFs the web has to offer.
