The Digital Age is Here!

And you thought ebooks were cutting-edge....

"WASHINGTON—Urging the estimated 60 million Americans who have not yet made the transition to the more advanced form of sustenance to do so as soon as possible, acting FDA commissioner Frank Torti announced Wednesday that the nationwide conversion to Digital Food (DF) will take place on Apr.17, 2009. "The only thing consumers who currently rely on analog foods will need is a digital converter box, which you can purchase at any grocery store," Torti said at a press conference, adding that every American household is eligible for a $40 coupon to digitize its current pantry. "DF offers higher texture quality and better taste, as well as multiple spice choices and interactive capabilities. I must stress, however, that after the deadline you will no longer be able to eat your current food." On the heels of the announcement, President Obama has begun pressuring the Senate to pass legislation that would require all food to be completely wireless by 2015."

Oh crap, and I just went to Aldi to stock up on frozen foods. Is it possible to strip the DRM off the boxes and convert them using Calibre?

Absolutely, you can now have customized food with all your favorite colors, ingredient sizes and calorie margins.

Actually, the digital ones are vegan by their very nature.

I wonder if we will receive email offers to get 3 out of a series of 4 ingredients for free? Then never see the 4th ingredient on the grocery store shelves ever again, or be told that the farmer doesn't approve of digital and refuses to release his produce that way?

Well, if he's a rich and much sought after farmer, then he'll get to call his own shots. But then he'll have to worry about piracy.

Like in pirates of the prairie? Or like in Rickey's guinea pig pirate? Pirates of the Caribbean ride? This might be a job for Red, seeing as how he has tackled the desert pirates and all.

You have to jail break your food processor in order to do that and the attendant glitches tend to give you yellow steaks and banana shaped milk, but it can be done.
