Some airlines are charging extra for overweight individuals. No problem. “Hey honey, make an appointment at the Lipo Salon. I have to fly to Boston in two weeks.” We would never have to worry about stepping on the Scales again. Our fat would be “worth its weight in gold” as USA’s energy problems disappear.
In concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO’s), hogs, chickens and cattle are fed corn and medicated to gain weight rapidly, in as little as 16 weeks for cows. Cows, by the way are ruminants whose double chamber stomach system is their normal way of digesting grass. Grass is their natural food. In CAFO’s, cows are fed corn for rapid weight gain and it often makes them sick. Is most of the beef eaten in this country from sick cows?
But I digress. Would that work for us? Would gaining weight quickly and repeatedly make one a rich person? Health-wise, it would undoubtedly be a heavy, risky business. Who wants to be sick as a cow?
Another interesting tidbit came my way via the grapevine. Whether it is true or not, the “yuk” factor is notable. It has been reported that tumors cut out of beef portions are thrown into the grinding machine that spews out ground beef. Did I hear a resounding “Yuk!”? I always did view fast food burgers with suspicion.
Michael Pollen’s research states that there are six additives to fast food burgers. There are fourteen additives to chicken nuggets. Additives include a glue-like substance to hold them together, as well as fillers, sweeteners, salt and preservatives.
Would the quality of the fat we sell at the Lipo Salon be rated? High grade, low grade, contaminated? How would celebrity fat be rated? Undoubtedly it would bring a higher price.
This entire liposuction fantasy is becoming just too fatuous! What I need right now is some comfort food—dark chocolate and peanut butter.
Proverbs 12:11 “He who works his land will have abundant food, but he who chase fantasies lacks judgement.”
