We're all going to be rich!

OMG, we can have a cheap alternative to fuel. We need to use dead cats as alternative fuels.

We could start by scraping up all the Texas the roadkill, and my favorite ingredient for Roadkill Chili, the armadillo. We have miles and miles of roads, Interstates, farm-to-market, county, residential and city streets in Texas No sireee, don't see any need for anything other than good old Texas roadkill.

A skunk could be a multiplier in this secret biodiesel recipe!

Here is a photo I took a year or so ago that could be the start of a new ad campaign!

Yep, my Ford Exploder is parked on the road and the fresh biodiesel dude is already posed! Whodathunkit?

Bring us your wreched refuse of the road …

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German inventor has angered animal rights activists with his answer to fighting the soaring cost of fuel -- dead cats.

Christian Koch, 55, from the eastern county of Saxony, told Bild newspaper that his organic diesel fuel -- a home-made blend of garbage, run-over cats, and other ingredients -- is a proven alternative to normal consumer diesel.

"I drive my normal diesel-powered car with this mixture," Koch said. "I have gone 170,000 km (106,000 miles) without a problem."

The Web site of Koch's firm, "Alphakat GmbH," says his patented "KDV 500" machine can produce what he calls the "bio-diesel" fuel at about 23 euro cents (30 cents) a litre, which is about one-fifth the price at petrol stations now.

Koch said around 20 dead cats added into the mix could help produce enough fuel to fill up a 50-litre (11 gallon) tank.

But the president of the German Society for the Protection of Animals, Wolfgang Apel, said using dead cats for fuel was illegal.

"There's no danger for cats and dogs in Germany because this practice is outlawed in Germany," Apel told Bild on Wednesday in a story entitled "Can you really make fuel out of cats?"

Right! We really believe that the Germans have already passed legislation outlawing this practice … uh, yeah. They think of everything. But I just checked the law in Texas and anything is fair game!

Soylent petroleum! Ya think we should head on down for some N'awlins nursing homes?

That, my dear children, is a story for another blog.
