Skip to comments.Poop Burger....(Evironmentalists Ultimate recycling process to save Mother Earth?)
Posted on 06/17/2011 8:12:00 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway
The meatpacking industry causes 18 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions, mostly due to the release of methane from animals. The livestock industry also consumes huge amounts of feed and water in relation to the amount of meat that it yields, and many find the industry to be inhumane and cruel to animals. These factors alone are reason enough for vegetarians to replace their meat intake with vegetable proteins and legumes. But Ikeda, a scientist at the Environmental Assessment Center in Okayama, sought to further the field of alternative proteins by recycling a form of protein-rich waste : sewage mud.
Sewage mud is exactly what you think it is poop. Ikedas process begins by extracting protein and lipids from the mud. The lipids are then combined with a reaction enhancer, then whipped into meat in an exploder. Ikeda then makes the poop more savory, by adding soya and steak sauce.
Currently, the price of the poop burgers are 10-20 times that of regular meat, due to the cost of research, but he feels they will even out in a few years. He admits that some people may have a psychological aversion to eating artificial meat made of their own poop at first, but thinks many would be open to personally completing the food chain. He also notes that the burgers are extremely low in fat.
(insert Hardees joke here)
Any bets on how quickly this stuff finds it way into school lunches? My vote is on LA School District being the first....
Judging by the poll....most people have problems with a Big Mac before a turd burger...
Iwsn’t this the same technique that gave rise to “Mad Cow Disease”?
Just goes to show you how important religion is to people.
Seriously, these people are advocating eating their own poop in support of their religion!
Any other religion that advocated something similar would be seen as completely ridiculous and fanatical.
I say Berkeley. More liberal nutjobs there.
My dog used to eat his own poop.
Who’d have thought he was a trend setter!
I have no problem with this, let them eat s_ _ t!
reminds me of all "green" leftard ideas.expensive and full of crap.
How about as an offset to the livestock all the environmentalists kill themselves.
I shudder to imagine what is the accompanying beverage.
I have no problem with this, let them eat s_ _ t!
It’s missing the standard “Coexist” sticker. And the “Hate Is Not A Family Value” one.
These just write themselves ..... I always knew the libs were full of poop, but I always thought figuratively. Who knew it actually was literally?
Explains a lot really.....
Currently, the price of the poop burgers are 10-20 times that of regular meat...
How insane are these people?.....Just more proof liberalism is a mental disorder.
So, are people supposed to bring in their own poop or do you just... I can’t finish the thought due to gag reflex. I just know there are sick idiots who will line up for this. UGH!
Not Soylent Green, that was people. Soylent Brown .......
The old saying shit in your mess kit becomes a reality!
But I guess making burgers out of excrement for human consumption isn't inhumane and cruel to humans?
Would the napkins come on a roll?
In N Out burger.
Maybe Marie Antoinette meant merde, not brioche.
It’s true. Environmentalists want us to wear burlap sacks, live in caves, and eat ***. And even then that won’t be good enough for them. Their real aim for us is death, because mankind is an “infection” on the earth mother they worship.
New McDonalds Butt Nuggets....
Are they finger licking good?
I guess that’s really “locally grown”.....
About 50 feet away.....
LAUSD is already three steps ahead of this...:P
Oh, good grief. Astronauts drink recycled urine because they can`t bring gazillions of gallons of water into space with them. If a breakthrough comes that creates “artificial” meat, more power to them. But I guess some feel that “real” meat loaded with pesticides, hormones, anti-biotics, steroids, and God knows what else is oh-so healthy.
I watched the video.......I’m 99% sure this is a prank. The dubbing is out of sync, and the video ends in China, not Japan.
Still, funny, in a gross sort of way, and creative as pranks go.
LOL to all of you!
some people may have a psychological aversion to eating artificial meat made of their own poop.....
Not a liberal...they’re saving the planet.
That is why some of us raise most of the meat we eat. Now for those inclined if they so choose please fill free to do so.
However please keep your distance and use some industrial strength tooth paste and mouth wash before meeting those not so inclined.
Hope it comes with a wet wipe and breath mint.
and don’t smile after eating a turd burger....please!
Apparently this loon Ikeda (or the author of this article) has eaten it.
What?! you people never went to mcdonalds and ordered a #2 supersized?
So then, by the tenth time you’ve eaten your recycled poop your s#!$ really won’t stink?....
Since they are so expensive, you can count on the Left advocating a subsidy for this fine new green industry. [barf]
Talk about a “ s#!t eating grin”............
