Meat Maker

Post by K. Claymore » Mon Sep 23, 2013 1:37 am

Cultured meat was now a major industry.

Ted Kastleman was a well-liked employee nicknamed Teddy Bear or just, Bear.

However, employees, like consumers, had no choice: meat factories were heading to China and, tomorrow, Ted would be unemployed. (The Labor Export Tax was supposed to help, or at least help placate voters. But, now companies simply did the math and then acted with impunity.)

Today was the Bear's last hurrah.

A conspiratory co-worker extracted the cells: dermal fibroblasts from the Bear's buttocks and pluripotent cells from his left testicle.

No matter what, this meat would always be Made in America.

I'd roll out the Welcome Mat, but you've already dripped pluripotent cells all over the floor. Nice start, hope to see more.

First you hit 'em with the dermal fibroblasts. Next the osteoclasts. They won't see it coming! Excellent first drabble, and welcome to the forums!
