Huge Quarterly Loss at Smithfield

September 8, 2009

Top pork producer Smithfield Foods announced it lost more than 100 million dollars last quarter. Their CEO, Larry Pope, made this highly unusual comment: “I sort of feel like the world has been against us for 12 months…”

Awww, somebody please break out a thousand of the world’s tiniest violins.

I think, in an effort to trim expenses at this difficult financial time, it’s time for Smithfield to fire Paula Deen. Link.
