A couple of lab kooks have harvested lipoid stem cells from human fat and made them act like smooth muscle cells. This is step one in rejection-proof transplant organ development.

Long story short: In the future it may be possible to harvest the average American’s disgustingly fat belly, strain it like spaghetti, and make him or her a new kidney after he or she has ruined the perfectly good ones they were born with due to their type 2 diabetes.

Good God.

Even better, fat is a renewable resource. Any dirtbag can sit on the couch and eat donuts all day…

Woohoo!

I’m picturing a Matrix-esque farm of fat people with Krispy Kreme delivery chutes and hoses and …

Oh, oh good lord. Fat farms, yeehaw.
