bevhillsThis is one of those stories that deserves mentioning, even if it doesn’t directly reference any celebrities. In the crazy, parallel dimension that his Beverly Hills, California only something like this would be remotely possible.

According to Forbes, a liposuction doctor removed the unwanted fat from his patients, processed it, and used the resulting biodiesel to fuel his Ford SUV and his girlfriend’s Lincoln Navigator. Apparently, the patients signed off that this could happen — even though its illegal in California to use human medical waste to power vehicles. No kidding. From the doc’s website,

“The vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel–and I have more fat than I can use,” Bittner wrote on lipodiesel.com. “Not only do they get to lose their love handles or chubby belly but they get to take part in saving the Earth.”

That website has since been shut down — and Bittner is being investigated by the state’s public health department. Conveniently, he closed shop earlier and high-tailed it down to South America for “volunteer work at a clinic” after patiensts complained that he “removed too much fat from [them] and left them disfigured.”

Like I said, only in Beverly Hills.
