Ok, I know several threads have already been posted on this strange topic, so give me a second to explain simply why I'm bringing this back up.
Well, for one, the last one was posted in February, so it's possible that there are some here who have yet to hear of this insanity. But more
specifically, I wanted to share something that I heard on a conspiracy site last night that, though it might seem like a small thing, I think is
actually quite telling.
The site is by a rather well known conspiracy theorist named Jeff Rense. Jeff is best known for his bitchin' hair style, as seen below...
If Jeff is good at one thing, he does get some very good guests on his program. Last night I was listening to an interview with a woman whom many on
here are probably also very familiar with, Catherine Austin Fitts:
Catherine Austin Fitts (born December 24, 1950) is an American investment banker and former public official who served as managing director of Dillon,
Read & Co. and, during the Presidency of George H.W. Bush, as United States Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development for Housing. She has
widely written and commented on the subject of public spending and has alleged several large scale instances of government fraud.
Soooo...anyway, to drag out such a simple thread as long as possible, these are a couple of heavy-weights in the field of conspiracy, and thereby is
what this thread is all about. Celebrity meat. I'll link to an article about it at the end, but just quickly, it's posited that a company called
BiteLabs is taking samples from contributing celebrities, cloning them and making salami (hahah...I couldn't help but laugh just typing it). Well,
it was brought up by Jeff to Catherine on the show, and she said that she had heard of it and seen the site, but that she couldn't discern whether it
was real or a spoof, Jeff agreed.
Finally, we get to the point. As mentioned, these aren't a couple of kids sitting under a blanket-fort (yes, I'm listening to the Community
soundtrack as I write this), these are serious, established, long-standing people in this field. So what does it say when a story, so seemingly
asinine, is not directly discernable to be truth or fable? How far off the rails are we when we can't tell if artisanal celebrity meat is a real
thing or not? On one hand, it's ridiculous to the point of being Satanic, on the other it is so realistic as to be plausible. Would people buy
this? You know they would. Would celebrities sell their soul for a buck? Yep! So why not their flesh?
Whether it's real or not, I don't know. I haven't researched it enough to know (I don't really care to be honest). This thread is not about
celebrity meat, it's about where we've gotten to in this world that we don't know (or didn't at the time of the above mentioned program). What's
next? No seriously, if you made it this far and are motivated to post a reply, let us know what ridiculousness could possibly be around the corner
that would top CELEBRITY SALAMI.
