    I can see it now, scary looking dudes with old beat up vans in the back of unlight parking lots at night. Pssst, hey bud, I can get you a good deal on some trans-fat frying oil. Got it right here, the good stuff. Guarenteed unused. Just got it in from Mexico. Yeah, don't tell no one where you got it, right? Oh crud, the trans-fat agents from BATFETF!!! RUN,RUN......
