What's for din din? Nano-particled food!

(NaturalNews) – The scientific community has once again caught food-tampering fever. Recent reports indicate that food scientists are busy developing nanoparticle-modified (NM) food that could one day end up on your dinner plate — and you may never even know about it. By shifting around nanoparticles, food scientists say that fat-free foods can taste like full-fat foods, and they can be programmed to digest more slowly–two changes that some say may help reverse the obesity epidemic.

Even so, within these Woolly Mammoth Chronicles, Odes to a Woolly Mammoth just keep on keepin' is today's installment for you, a two-fer:

Oh wake thee not the woolly mammoth
sleeping as a fossil
though it might be a kick to pet
a creature so colossal!

Please don't return oh woolly mammoth
