Proving that some people have way to much time on their hands, scientists in Japan have made “steaks” from human excrement. Before you reach for the Ketchup, read this:

The mere idea is stomach-churning: creating food from human feces.

But researchers in Japan say they have done just that. They have synthesized meat from proteins found in human waste, according to news reports.

While the concept of chowing down on steak derived from poop may not exactly be appetizing, we wondered: is this meat safe?

In theory, yes, experts say. But the meat must be cooked, which will kill any noxious pathogens before you eat it.

Really? You need to COOK IT? I’m shocked — shocked! — I tell you! Speaking of “noxious,” how about that lovely aroma as you unwrap the package and as you grill-it-up?

Is this concept REALLY something the world was waiting for? Like, how would you even advertise this shit?
