Hero OK Lawmaker Seeks To Outlaw Aborted Fetuses As Food Ingredient

The foodie craze from hell!

What’s in your anusburger, Oklahoma, besides cow rectums, sawdust and glue? It can be hard to tell! Have you ever, as a result, worried to yourself, what if there are also ground up aborted human fetuses in here and I don’t even realize it? Oklahoma state Senator Ralph Shortey — his real name! — worries so fervently about this possibility that he went and introduced a bill banning the use of aborted fetuses as an ingredient in “food or any other product intended for human consumption.” You know, JUST IN CASE, GUYS. (Dog food, on the other hand, is fine.)

Here is the entire text of Shortey’s bill, which we pray is the last remaining evidence of human civilization when aliens finally discover Earth:

No person or entity shall manufacture or knowingly sell food or any other product intended for human consumption which contains aborted human fetuses in the ingredients or which used aborted human fetuses in the research or development of any of the ingredients.

OH and also this award-winning soundbite from Shortey, who may or may not have shot three syringes full of psilocybin into his eyeballs immediately before he talked to this KRMG news reporter:

“There is a potential that there are companies that are using aborted human babies in their research and development of basically enhancing flavor for artificial flavors,” says Shortey.

He admits he has no evidence that this fetus food nightmare is currently happening in Oklahoma or anywhere else, but then again there’s no evidence that an invisible giant lizard isn’t responsible every time Ralph Shortey’s car keys are definitely not where he left them last time. So there. [KRMG.com/ The Lost Ogle; Thanks to Wonkette operative “Steve B.”]

    basically enhancing flavor for artificial flavors,” says Shortey

    What the hell–aborted fetuses are organic so they couldn't be used in artificial flavors anyway.

    • Terry

      They aren't organic if the pregnant woman ate a lot of fast food, sodas, and twinkies.

    You know, he could just as easily have said, "I'm a Fox News educated moron" using far fewer words.

      A beaujolais nouveau is sort of a stillborn wine, so that, as long as you weren't cooking your fetus in a light sauce that the wine would stomp on. If you wanted a white wine, I'd say a non-oaked viognier would do well.

    Mammy's little baby's just Shortey'n Bread.
    Two little children / Lyin' in the womb

    Aw, damn. The beautiful, scenic drive from Stillwater to Topeka will be ruined by all those gaudy "Fetus burger!!!" signs that are going to spring up as you approach the Kansas border.

    Yeah, and I don't want any Santorum in there, either – and no Gingrichery….Some Romney's ok, if under the federal limits (it's just bland and rich), but under no circumstances any wild Bushery….

    See, if you vote against it, they will say you were FOR eating babies and you probably won't get re-elected.

    • savethispatient

      What's worse is that Romney actually changed his position on baby-eating between becoming a Governor and running for President.

      • Generation[redacted]

        He won't admit it, but this is based on the same baby-eating program he instituted as Governor. It just doesn't pay to compromise with Republicans on the issue of baby-eating.

      Great. Now I have a craving for a fetus and cheddar sandwich. With Horsey Sauce.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    And now what am I going to do with my factory full of aborted fetuses that I have tasting everything to find a great flavor enhancer.

    Why do the Republicans hate job creators like me???

    I say, shouldn't we do what the Free Market demands? If I want a fetus in my food and someone is willing to produce that for me, shouldn't we let the Invisible Hand (grasping some forceps) decide?

  • flamingpdog

    I think Ralph Shortey is a perfect example of that partial-abortion birth they're always talking about. They delivered the body, but aborted the brain.

  • jus_wonderin

    Dog Food? My Doxie is getting a bit heavy. Will there be a weight control version of the, sure to be delicious, Fetus Dog Food?

    It does make one wonder what the names of this food will be. I'd love to be able to spot it immediately in the Pet Care aisle.

    “There is a potential that there are companies that are using aborted human babies in their research and development of basically enhancing flavor for artificial flavors,” says Shortey.

    Jonathan Swift had this all figured out years ago in his Modest Proposal:

    "I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled, and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout."

    Beware the Law of Unintended Consequences: after this law passes, it'll be legal in Oklahoma to kill and eat anyone already born and living.

    Or maybe that's an intended consequence. I don't know that much about Sen. Shortey.

  • chascates

    Aborted fetuses would be a much safer ingredient than the legally allowed levels of insects, rat dung, and completely untested chemicals that are permitted under federal law.

    And Jackie and Aristotle Onassis loved eating unborn lamb (true fact) so there. What I mean is the lamb was cut out of its mother and then prepared. Eating it raw would be disgusting!
