Egg Inflation Has Sent One Texas Man Into Total Desperation
With eggs reaching sky high pricing...people are getting SERIOUSLY creative in order to afford them.
Like this guy in Austin, who posted on social media that he was willing to trade sex for eggs.
Yep, you read that right... sex for eggs.
Hilariously posted on a Craigslist ad earlier this week, the self-described "32-year-old Austin guy who just happens to be... "in between jobs and loves breakfast tacos" is offering his sex services in exchange for cartons of eggs.
That's right... not just one but several cartons. You could say he is being 'eggstra.'
Since being shared on Twitter by Evil MoPac which is an apparent parody account allegedly "run by a stretch of Austin highway known for miserable traffic the ad had gone viral with close to 100,000 views and more than 1,000 likes!
So why are eggs so expensive right now anyway?
According to Emily Metz, President & CEO of the American Egg Board says that it's not inflation that is causing the incredible rise in egg prices, saying, "While it would be easy to blame inflation for the serious surge in price, it’s not that simple."
So if it's not inflation, what is going on?
Metz says egg farmers are dealing with the deadliest avian flu outbreak in history! Last year, the flu claimed the lives of more than 53 million birds.
The good news is that farmers are now recovering from the loss and egg production is getting back on track.
In the meantime, here is the ad...just in case. Okay it's a snippet of the ad because there were some bad words.
