i am not making this up. one could not make up something like this. and it’s even for sale on the venerable amazon.com.
thanks to the hardworking, visionary and friendly people of the “anatomical chart company”, you, too, can own a “grossly dramatic replica of 5 pounds of fat” (for ONLY $83.95, plus shipping). who wouldn’t want to see “the additional blood vessels needed to maintain additional fat”?? and, wow — this is where the real value starts to kick in — it’s made of “pliable long-lasting vinyl”! in other words, it’ll last for years, and become a family heirloom.
one might say this product is “phat”, but then, one would have to stand corrected.
