Wait. What? You didn’t hear about it? Okay, well thanks (or no thanks) to the miracles of modern science, apparently there is a Mr. Ikeda, a Japanese scientist, who has found a way to pull the proteins from human waste to make burgers and steaks. Yummy?!? The video mentions getting past the psychological barrier is going to be the biggest challenge of getting these steaks into the hands and mouths of consumers. Umm…yeah!! I mean it is poo.
I consider myself a pretty open-minded person about most things. I’ve actually eaten cooked meal-worms and crickets right here in Japan…no joke (they’re kinda crunchy). But there are certain items that my mind puts an non-removable block on eating. Roaches are one. Cooked, diced, sliced, whatever, I don’t want to eat roaches! I’m going to have to say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that a terd-steak or poo burger is going to (unquestionably) make the list of Donnie’s Blacklisted Foods.
I got a link from a friend and former expat (thanks Dinene) about the “sh*t burgers” being made right here in good ole Japan!
I’m all for going green and doing what we can to save the planet…but going brown? Not so much.
How about you? Are you willing to try one of these? Please check out this video and tell me what you think
I am SEVERELY curious to hear your thoughts on this one!!
I wonder what different nicknames they could come up with for these: Boo Boo Burgers? Brown Beef? Sewage Steaks? The Excrementalicious Burger (Sound Willy Wonka Fantasy-ish)?, Terd T-Bones?, E.Co Meat (Like Eco as in Eco-friendly, but really is like E.Co as in E. Coli)?, The Number 2 Burger? Soylent Brown Beef? Okay, okay, I’ll stop, some of you may be eating.
See you tomorrow with something a little less weird, lol! 😉
