I'd seen this reported on SBS news. Something strikes me as being a bit off
with this. Maybe I'm just nervous because of how quickly Monsanto is to shove
insufficiently tested and potentially dangerous food stuffs onto the market
in a less than ethical manner.

Maybe I just don't have a taste for Soylent Green.

Twould be better if it didn't reinforce sexist stereotypes (the ones that
deplete people's bank accounts).

Ah, now this is insanely cool.

Toodles,

Katherine

Oooh, I don't mind the idea. Maybe they'll stop people cutting down rainforest
for grazing land just to make a big mac!
Gotta say, the photo doesn't look all that appealing though...

You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.
