In a surprise and innovative initiative announced today by the G7 economic countries, plans are at an advanced stage to offer initiatives to the obese to undergo liposuction.

Scientists have discovered that human fat is 12.8 times more energy efficient than diesel fuel.
The plan would see human fat used to make a super biodiesel, It is estimated that the average obese male could contribute enough energy per annum to power 2 family cars.Figures for the female obese have not been released lest they offend.

Future plans include a stent or "tap" system based on techniques used in the rubber tapping industry, to provide a constant drip feed of this new resource.

The UK health ministry welcomed the plan, saying that many extra years of healthy life would result from the scheme.

Shares in McDonalds soared on the news, the oil sector was sold down.Other beneficiaries are expected to be airlines with the double bonus of less fuel weight with the new super fuel, and smaller airline seats.
