This thread being bumped did give me the chance to revisit this though:
I'm reading the Super Size Me bloke's book right now, and there's this anecdote from someone who used to work in a cremation facility. He said one day he suddenly felt really peckish and could smell something "tasty". In the end, he discovered that it was some really, really fat bloke, whose fat was melting off him faster than it could be burned up. It smelled, to this guy, identical to how McDonald's smells.gordon wrote:1. The fat is literally melting from my body and draining into an old vegetable oil bottle at my feet. I plan to use it to cook my chips this winter.
Between a revist of PETA and Spurlock's film/book, we're rapidly heading down the "organic only" and "very little meat" route here (which works rather well in the summer!)
