Who would notice the difference?
"I was at the National Restaurant Show yesterday, and checked out an impressive start-up company that is making Scotch Eggs out of dog dirt, hipster beard shavings and cat eggs," said Ron McBurgler, "and it set me thinking. They're selling these foul creations for $10 a time. Now just imagine if we could do away with the cow altogether, recycle our own waste products, and put the prices of our new burgers up at the same time. We'd not only be saving billions, our profits would go through the roof."
While most commentators have responded with disgust to McBurgler's idea, one public figure willing to defend his blue skies thinking was Labour MP Wes Streeting. "The vast majority of the reaction has been old-fashioned snobbery," the street fighting representative for Ilford North told Burger Off magazine. "I for one can't wait to tuck in to the new style Big Mac, and McDonald's will still be very much welcome at this year's Labour conference. I've also heard they've some ideas for new condiments, and as a big fan of mayonnaise, can't wait to see what they've come up with."
Ron McBurgler is also unrepentant, telling the Cannibal Times that if still in charge his plans wouldn't stop there. "I've heard about this thing called Soylent Green. Apparently it's people, but I don't see why that should stand in our way of properly marketing it. Consumers are too damn fussy these days."
