Unfortunately the practice was illegal, according to California state health officials.

Soylent Green is people!

Apparently it is also being considered for motor fuel....

That's been done for decades. "Get your fat ass out and push my car"

Did this fellow think of putting the squeeze on Michael Moore?

Apparently not yet.

maybe it's the same thread. it's just too sick, a bit to Naziesque for me, and each time it reincarnates I am more repusled by it.

Plus I was never fond of very fat people.

Reminds me of an old Cheech and Chong skit (yes, from my mis-spent youth, but I was only 13 years old).... C&C have their car broken down in some urban area and call out to a lounging bystander for some assistance in getting the car out of the street -- the guy replies in strong "ghetto" accent:

"Push the car? Man, get yo' mama to push the car"! ...

I remember being in a nice restaurant about 60 years ago. There was a huge fat lady a couple of tables away. I thought she must be sick to be that fat....until I saw her pile her plate. No sympathy here.

He was paid to remove the fat.

Why not put it to use?

It’s a health law thing, I’m sure. It would be considered medical waste, and there’s probably only specified ways in which it can be used and otherwise must be disposed of as a biohazard. Certainly a good rule in general, I doubt that there was any particular hazard here.

Course, what do they do with the biohazard waste, they INCINERATE it! This guy could probably use that as the basis of his defense.

Here’s the bottom story:

“Several former patients have filed lawsuits against the doctor, claiming he allowed his unlicensed girlfriend and an assistant to perform procedures, causing mistakes that left the patients disfigured, attorney Andrew Besser, who represents three of the former patients, told Forbes.com.”

It’s the GF’s fault.

Michael Moore certainly does have a lot of carbon-offsets to trade in at the SF Airport.

Straight out of “Fight Club.”

Also, the Nazis boiled down dead Jews and made soap.
