Inflation & PB&J's

Give me a frigging break. I make three peanut butter and jelly sandwiches a day. Two for me and one for Sweet Wife. Stock up my friends.

Say it ain't so: One of the cheapest sandwiches you can make at home soon won't cost so little.

The cost of one of the cheapest sandwiches in the brown-bagger's repertoire is about to go up -- in a very big way.

J.M. Smucker Co., owner of popular brand Jif, announced a 30% price hike for November -- just in time for National Peanut Butter Lovers Month -- and it won't be the only peanut butter maker to raise prices.

Smucker says it will increase the price of the "J" part of PB&J by 4% too.

"So as consumers we're buying peanut butter for a little more than $3 a jar (and) we're going to be paying over $4 a jar when that price increase hits," Shelly Nutt, the exquisitely named executive director of the Texas Peanut Producers, told the Fox TV station in Lubbock, Texas. "And I think we're going to see it for all the peanut butter companies, not just Jif."

Isn't this a beauty. She's a Vietnam ear M16A1.

Granted it will not function as well as any current AR15 system we have today, but still, the grace of it. She's clean, uncluttered, no mall ninja junk or silly tactical after market crap strapped to her frame. A rifle, a relic of our past. I love it.
