That reminds me of the food advertisement for Recycled Food in the Judge Dread movie with Sylvester Stallone. The voice on the ad said, "Recycled Food: It's great for the environment, and... ok for you."

How long will it be before Hollyweird makes a shitty remake of Soylent Green?

It will become a political statement on racism. Hollywood does that these days.

Something just dawned on me: why is a thread about soylent green, a substance made from dead people, doing in a forum called great food and drinks?

Because the thread started with Donnie talking about Izzy drinking a product called Soylent. Then he posed the hypothetical question if we would consume Soylent Green.

Ok, but dead people aren't exactly what I would classify as good food.

No, but Soylent is supposed to be a legitimate beverage product and the original topic. Unless you want ZZ to move individual posts out of the thread?

They actually did name the product after Soylent Green. That seems like a bad marketing strategy knowing what the green stuff was made from, but maybe they are thinking younger people won't notice since the movie is so old and they've probably never even heard of it.

I think people know about the movie. That's the "inside" joke.
