Which Is Worse For Wisconsin: Aaron Rodgers’ Shoulder Injury Or A Cheese Shortage?

The entirety of Wisconsin clenched their one remaining good artery last week as Aaron Rodgers went down with a collarbone injury. According to some sources, he suffered from a “discount crumble neck,” eh? Eh? No? Ok, moving on.

Anyway, the Green Bay faithful are concerned. But what would cause a Wisconsinite to be more concerned – the Rodgers injury, or a statewide cheese shortage? Let’s go to the tape.

Aaron Rodgers' Injury

Cheese Shortage

While the Packers are in a three-way tie for first in the NFC North at 5-3. If they go on a skid, their playoff potential could be in danger. Without home playoff games, Green Bay stands to lose out on money, merchandise sales, etc. Ramifications? Without cheese, 90% of Wisconsin’s caloric consumption would be gone in a second. This would ultimately be good for the health of Packer fans.
Seneca Wallace, who still plays, apparently. Backup Plan? Sausage and beer.
“GLURK!” Reaction Upon First Finding Out? “HURRRG!”
None? No impact? Impact On Headwear? Packer cheese heads would no longer be en vogue.
According to TheirNetWorth.com, Aaron Rodgers is worth $95 million. Financial Impact? According to a Review of Wiconsin's Dairy Industry, Wisconsin cheese brings in $26.5 billion in revenue.

Cheese Shortage
3 out of 5

The winner: CHEESE! Cheese is a bigger concern to Wisconsin citizens by a score of 3-2. So next time you’re biting into a big block of cheddar, make sure to thank your lucky stars that the Wisconsin cheese industry is healthy and robust.
