Mystery Meat

One of my all-time favourite movie lines is from Bill Murray in Meatballs:

Attention. Here’s an update on tonight’s dinner. It was veal. I repeat, veal. The winner of tonight’s mystery meat contest is Jeffrey Corbin who guessed “some kind of beef”.

Well the following video is about “some kind of beef” but I’m not sure Jeffrey Corbin’s guess really covers what this stuff is.

While I think this woman is sadly mistaken in the belief that obesity can be tackled by removing one food item from your diet (“your vice”), her contribution to food science in the odd form of carrying around a 4 year old hamburgers should not go unnoticed.

Funny that they don’t make the obvious statement: nothing can live on these burgers… not even mould.

The idea that the burger once in you is stuck there like some undigested bubble gum (another old wives tale) seems to suggest a bit more science could be applied to how the body works.

But that burger… those fries.
Gross and cool all rolled up into one.

If any 10 year olds see this video they will all start carrying around ageing happy meals.
