Risky Business Models:
Orlando-area cosmetic surgeon Jeffrey Hartog inaugurated Liquid Gold, a storehouse for patients’ frozen liposuctioned fat, charging $900 to safekeep a coffee-cup-sized portion and $200 per year storage (in case the fat is needed later, as for smoothing facial wrinkles). A Massachusetts General Hospital physician shook his head, telling the Orlando Sentinel, “(F)rozen fat doesn’t hold up as well as fresh fat.” [Orlando Sentinel, 9-14-2011]
Fresh Fat, or was it Phatt? Three weeks ago Phatt Ass’d Paddy waddled into Beef O’ Pukes and saw I was there. The behemoth took about 5 minutes to maneuver an about face and waddled out. Last Saturday she used a forklift (hand truck) to lift her considerable ass upon a stool. In the year or so since Dewey’s closed its doors in shame I’ve enjoyed actually NOT seeing a few of the regulars she being one of them. I was so grossed out by the ‘fresh fat’ sagging and spilling over each side of the stool I was the one that left. It’s really a shame they don’t cut Phatt Ass in chunks and freeze it. There’d be enough grease to power Fresno for a year!
