World Speedboat Record Attempt with Human Fat Fuel
Peter Bethune, a 41 year old New Zealander, is planning to break the record for circumnavigating the globe in a speedboat. The catch? His 78-foot speedboat is powered only by renewable fuels. Still not satisfied? The boat will also be powered by fat drained from his ass. That's right. Ass fat. His fat will only power the boat for a miniscule fraction of his 27,600 mile journey; for the rest of the voyage, the boat will be fueled by vegetable oil and animal fat. Doesn't America have a dramatic obesity problem? How can we let a New Zealander beat us at our own game? I guess there's still a chance to circumnavigate the globe in a boat powered solely by the fat from one person's ass. If we succeed, we'll finally restore the world's confidence in the U.S. Sponsored by McDonald's.
