Gather round, kids. It's time for an Economics lesson with shouty political commentator Glenn Beck! And cupcakes! Apparently he's something of a cupcake expert: "I speak the language of food, and cupcakes. Baked goods. Yeah, I grew up in a bakery. They smell so yummy."
Anyway, eventually he gets around to using cupcakes to explain global food riots, or, as he's called them in the past, friots (french fry riots). Will there be cupcake riots, too? Beck is predicting doom and gloom, with weather-based crop failure and riots in the US. And while we can't control the weather, "we can control the eating, or the spending, of our cupcakes." So like a friot diet?
