Another source for biodiesel: liposuction fat

Okay, who's going to be the first to contribute their flab to a gas pump?

Beware, a Norwegian businessman wants the blubber out of your thighs and tummies. Apparently the company is after 3,000 gallons of human fat that is available every week from Southern Florida liposuction clinics. That's enough to produce 2,600 gallons of biodiesel. Now tell me this isn't a heart-warming episode idea for the Entertainment Channel's show called "Dr. 90210," which is about Beverly Hills plastic surgeons. The tabloids could speculate on the celebrity patients who contribute to the first bag of organic fluff.

This is really a great fuel-saving idea. Remember the post about overweight people wasting fuel? Now you can drop a few pounds and fill up your Mercedes-Benz E320 Bluetec in one stop. What's next, harvesting human triglycerides from dead people? Oh my God, it's "Soylent Green" come true. I can already envision Charlton Heston screaming, "BioWillie is people!"
