All hail the fake chicken plant!

This should fix everything.

I believe the correct technical term is "ersatz," not "fake." "Fake" suggests an intent to deceive.

Lends a whole new meaning to the phrase, "Tastes just like chicken."

This could only be the beginning. We have several saw mills in Missouri. We could use the sawdust to make "coffee." No research work need be done at MU to accomplish this; the Germans developed the process during the final years of the Third Reich, when coffee became unavailable. I've never tasted it, but German friends say it left "something to be desired." :)
