Have a try of this baby.

First of all there was this story which passed through my viewing screen with barely a shrug what with one crazed thing and another loony-fucking-tune thing that the intertoobs delivers. And I had thought  no more of it until yesterday.
Somehow I found Sodahead and their forum discussion of:
Obama agency rules Pepsi use of cells derived from aborted fetus ‘ordinary business’ 
Which you have to admit, is eye catching.  
So with a bit more digging about I find that this has been around a while. The website referenced by the original story references is http://www.lifesite.net/news and this appears to be the source of all the marlarky . LifeNews being the chief god botherers in this case.
Here's what really happens: In the 1970's aborted fetus kidney cells were used to start a kidney cell line labelled HEK 293 (Human Embryo Kidney, experiment 293). These cell's squillions of descendants have proteins in them that react to some molecules. If you want to find out the lowest level you can put some flavouring into a food and still get a reaction you can use these proteins. That's it. You take your flavour to the lab they run it through the proteins, no contact with HEK293 and final product.
BUT NO!!! the commentators at sodahead are full of Teh Fear:
Right but it is created from Human Tissue to be consumed That my friend is cannibalism!
Barry is the Anti Christ and I have drank pepsi as long as I can Remember but I quit as of Today.
And of course the knockabout humour of:
So if this is okay, then using the cells of aborted liberals to grease the treads of our tanks shouldn't be a problem then?
Ha ha. "Aborted Liberals" will create a sorting job in the new Knowledge Economy, for someone, I suppose
One might even include a cartoon from the Great Satan, G.Larson via M.E.C. Smut Clyde:

A bill was introduced in the Oklahoma state senate Friday that would ban the manufacture of food containing aborted human fetuses.

NO MOAR DUMPLINGS

Hell, babe, we don't give a shit if'n you use our cells as a sexual lubricant when you fuck goats.

What part of WE'RE FUCKING ABORTED are you struggling to comprehend? 'Cause I can draw you a freakin' PICTURE, in CRAYON if you'd find it helpful.

On toppa which, you oughta know (as Alanis will remind you) that us fetuses are notoriously wishy/washy politically, and some of those aborted liberals you're chuckling over were actually aborted ROCKRIB CONSERVATIVES!! Well, to the extent they had, you know, developed ribs.

I should also mention that no matter why you quit drinking that toxic syrup, you're going to live longer and you might even avoid diabetes. Sometimes, stupid ISN'T what stupid does.

Imagine that...

tigris said...

Why tanks? Which aborted fetuses are the ones in the soda, aborted diabetics? Are only aborted vegetarians in the baby-que?

Smut Clyde said...

Why tanks?
Someone sees himself or herself as Patton addressing the 3rd Army.

You'd think liberals were dropping abortifacients into the drinking water then breaking into homes with suction machines to make abortalicious pizza and baked goods.

Would somebody pleeze think of the cells!!!

I am cell, hear me roar,
and I'm too small to ignore---

Those sorters are clever. All the fetuses named Max go into this.

England's Blackpool Pleasure Beach amusement park opened the Pepsi Max Big One steel roller coaster.

While the US groans under the oppression of Downton Abbey we give Blackpool the taste of freedom!

I have 293 cells in the lab. Because I AM THE DEVIL!!!!

I like Diet aborted fetus with Lime. It's super yummy!

considering the size of most aborted fetuses, it's gonna take a whole buttload of them to grease even one tank tread. Better get aborting, freakazoids!

For extra irony, use 'em to grease up the treads of the Nursing Tank.

tigris said...

I think they should be turned into lube. Maybe even cola-flavored.

Another Kiwi said...

It'd be a logistical nightmare keeping the tanks running with fetus lube. I guess it must be better for the tracks or symbolic or something. Just for drinking a few babies, sheesh, some people are thin skinned!

tigris said...

I didn't mean tank lube. The pixies will explain, and luckily their hands are too tiny for us bigs to fully comprehend the filthy gestures they make with them.

Another Kiwi said...

Oh, a sort of Santorum based lube. Erm, well, of course what ever people choose for their, erm, lifestyles, you know.

Smut Clyde said...

Fetal-cell-free mechanical-parts Cola alternative.

Gonna need a lot of lube if'n yer gonna roger a pixie!

Substance McGravitas said...

Agreed!

Nice try at a black flag op, Anonymous but we are true TIM KALEMKARIAN fans here and won't be diverted by your concern trolling.
