Officially termed “Lean Beef Trimmings,” the product is a ground-up combination of beef scraps, cow connective tissues and other beef trimmings that are treated with ammonium hydroxide to kill pathogens like salmonella and E. coli. It’s then blended into traditional meat products like ground beef and hamburger patties.
When I come into my village after a long fast out on the desert I often get guff from the villagers. I hear their scorn, “Oh look here comes mystic, lets get off the street because he will say something negative!” OR “Go back to the desert mystic, we don’t want you to kill our buzz!” I can’t blame them, they are probably all juiced up on Zoloft. Human kind cannot bear very much reality. But seriously, how can one be positive when our taxes go to pay for people to buy “Lean Beef Trimmings” for school lunch programs? It is basically gristle mixed with poison, and then mixed into hamburger so you can feed more children for less money. This is the extent of government imagination–feed poison to kids. At their trial I can hear the defense now, “Hey I was just following orders.” With all the other crap going on in the world today, this is like pouring ammonium hydroxide into the wounds.
Oh yeah and this, Ryanair is proposing serving up adult features for in-flight entertainment. Can you imagine your twelve year old son sitting next to some dude watching a porno on a flight from London to Italy? I guess Ryanair can. Maybe you’ll get a Soylent pink burger with your in-flight entertainment, and a happy landing? Perhaps somewhere in Greece.
