Researchers in the US have been studying the role of a specific gene, Bdnf, in obese mice. It is thought that the gene is responsible in allowing the brain to make that important decision of when to stop eating which is essential in the fight against obesity. The team of scientists, led by Baoji Xu, we’re finally ready this week to announce the findings of their seven year study. Baoji Xu made the following statement to a gathering of fellow scientists and international media representatives.
“My team and I are very happy to have finally reached a clear conclusion to this long study. What we can confirm is that the mice raised without the presence of the Bdnf gene were not only at least four to five times the weight of the other mice but more importantly those pudgy little buggers are absolutely delicious and so difficult to stop eating once you have started. Those tasty little rodents are just so morish. Enough talk. Who’s up for some genetically modified BBQ!”
Alright folks, who ordered the two Itchy and Scratchys, and the Stuart Little? Careful with those Speedy Gonzalez patties. They pack a spicy punch.”
The team is keen to extend it’s research to other more tasty meat types such as poultry, beef, and seafood. It also hopes to attract the sponsorship of a major corporate fast food chain to fund further work in the area to not only ensure scientific success but to help put on another press conference barbecue of proportions only possible with the magic of science.
Holy crap, look at how big this friggin’ chicken has become. Next year’s barbecue is gonna kick some serious ass guys.
