This photo was taken earlier today at Bridge Apothecary in DUMBO, one of the last remaining stores carrying o.b. tampons during the Great o.b. Tampon Shortage (2010 - ????). As you can see their supply has now run out, even though two weeks ago the owner was certain they'd be overflowing with boxes of the non-applicator brand in no time. In fact, Johnson & Johnson has been assuring everyone that the tampons would be back on shelves "soon"... but that's been their canned answer for months now. Can we get WikiLeaks on this?

In the meantime, Bust magazine has some alternatives to get you through this tampocalypse.
