Poop Burgers

If you thought China had strange food, listen to this: Japanese scientists have found a way to create artificial meat from sewage containing human feces. It's being called the "poop burger." Japanese scientists have actually discovered a way to create edible steaks from human feces. Tokyo Sewage is desperate to find a way to get rid of a large amount of sewage mud. The solution? Eat it.

It turns out that poop has a lot of protein in it, because it's filled with bacteria. On the Digital Trends website, Jeff Hughes writes, "The 'meat' is 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The researchers color the poop meat red with food coloring and enhance the flavor with soy protein. Initial tests have people saying it even tastes like beef.." It's also better for the environment and has fewer calories. And although you'd think that meat made out poop would be cheap, at the moment it's more EXPENSIVE than real meat, due to the cost of the research that went into creating them. And can you microwave the leftovers?

Hmm, wonder how many times you could recycle the same poop to hamburger to poop etc.? Also, wouldn't it make everyone who ate it a potty mouth?

Hmmm. I have 100 lbs to lose. I'll just keep coming back to THIS page. Give me a nice red tomato anyday.

Back in the sixties my father went to a Knights of Columbus meeting were the main speaker was a NASA scientist. The subject feeding astronauts long term in space. He brought show and tell food. All made out of "You guessed it".

Another reason to be a vegetarian.

but is it meat? better read the ingredients on those "meat alternative" packages -- lol!

how about this for a Teaparty 2012 political solution slogan -- "Let them eat poop!"

Lol, blue. Always wondered what TVP stood for. No, it's not Texturized Vegetable Protein. I stand corrected. It's Texturized Veritable Poop. Is that served with a side of antibiotics? Pass the Keflex, please.

Burger King is already selling these...
