Youl Rips So Soft Rike Dead Chinaman

Here's the link to this story:
LONDON (AFP) - A British newspaper said that a Chinese cosmetics company was using skin harvested from the corpses of executed convicts to develop beauty products for sale in Europe.

Agents for the firm, which could not be named for legal reasons, have told would-be customers that skin taken from prisoners after they have been shot is being used to develop collagen for lip and wrinkle treatments, the Guardian newspaper said following an undercover investigation.

"The agents say some of the company's products have been exported to the UK, and that the use of skin from condemned convicts is 'traditional' and nothing to 'make such a big fuss about'," the daily alleged.
[...]
Oh the j0kes that spring to mind...
Suffice it to say, which cosmetic products would you rather use; those made from chinese convicts, those made from *recycled grill fat, or those made from whale blubber?


*Elaboration: When we first moved into our current home, there was a factory a few blocks away that - we were informed - was in their last few months of their lease and would be going away in a year or so.
We asked what they manufactured there and were told they collected used grease from the numerous fry grills in hotels, motels, bars, fast food joints and so on, throughout the city.
They then took the grease to this plant, did whatever it is they do, then sold it to cosmetics manufacturers whereupon it was turned into makeup, lipstick,...

Well, they eventually moved out, and the place caught fire. Now THAT was a hot fire. I remember it well...
Around midnight, Christmas eve 1999. A turkey in the smoker, sirens in the air, police informing me "YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CARRY AN OPEN CONTAINER ON CITY STREETS. TAKE IT HOME NOW!"
