A Turd is a Turd

So there I was on twitter. Happily reading the tweets of my peeps when I spot a link to this.

Okay so I know people are lazy and very few actually clicked on that link so I'll tell you about it. A team of Japanese scientist having been mucking around in Tokyo's sewage. Using some fancy scientific crap (pun intended they have extracted proteins, carbohydrates and fats from the feces. Then combining the elements and adding soy protein and red food coloring they are creating an imitation meat product -- steaks and burgers.

No, I am not shitting you. 

According to the article the sewage is heat treated first so the end product is safe to eat.

There goes the old saying, "Eat shit and die."

The food safety guy quoted in the article claims that eating this product which is produced by human shit is equivalent to eating veggies fertilized by excrement since both gain their nutrients via feces. His argument does support my stance that all veggies are crap but this is still a real stinker of an idea.

I seriously doubt event eh most green eco-friendly folk are going to be eager to chow down on a shit burger. And Vegans can't eat anything that came from something with a face. So I ask who the hell is gonna eat this crap?


  1. Did you have to post this when my husband is making hamburgers? Shudder.

  2. don't worry, the corporate elites will still have grass fed beef. This is for us peons.
    Thanks for the laughs your gov is providing!

    (ooo political today - sorry, Trav)

    Aloha from Honolulu :)

  3. Oh, and MY Gov picked a fight with the NFL over the Pro-Bowl. What is this stupid that lives in the corridors of power?

  4. They'll be able to sell it to food companies that will sell it to restaurants that will use it in their salad bar as bacon bits.

  5. "adding soy protein and red food coloring"

    Ewwwww! That stuff is so bad for you! :-D It's bad enough knowing that school food burgers and probably many others are tainted with soy (textured vegetable protein), now they're tampering with my excrement too?

    As for vegans, I believe it's only when the product comes from an animal. So, poo from other vegans would technically still be vegan. I think? Good natural source of b vitamins! :-D

  6. A new twist on Soylent Green, maybe?

  7. Well, thus opens the way for my first visit to this site, Travis *laughing!* I am officially distubed and grossed-the-fark-out ... LAWD! laughing...ungh ungh!
