"The answer to pollution is not to use the ground up remains of tortured animals for fuel," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich told Fast Company.

I wasn't so sure before, but when you put it that way, this was a quarter million well-spent.

Eco-friendly and discounted fares is a plus.

Just what Americans need; the urge to go to McDonalds whenever a train passes.

Moo moo choo choo??

Insert "fresh ground black people" joke here_________.

**Climbs into handbasket**

'Can't cha hear the whistle bloooowin': Moooooooooooooooo

McDonald's must be behind this somehow.

The exhaust fumes make you need french fries.

Your tax dollars at work.

Can these dimwits get any stupider? What happens when the engines clog up with cholesterol and everything just stops.

I smell the train a comin'
It's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't had a T-bone,
Since, I don't know when,
I'm stuck in some ol' prison,
With food no man can bear,
But that smell keeps a-waftin',
Bet it was medium rare.

When I was just a baby,
My Mama told me, "Son,
Always be a good boy,
Don't ever steal no buns,"
But I shot a man in Wendy's,
His burger caught my eye,
Now, when I smell that diesel chuggin',
I pang for steak and fries.

Loudmouth, then they do a angio-moo-plasty. I thought is was a train pulled by a couple of cows. This makes a lot more sense.

Prime Cut, Meanie! I'd title that one 'Cash Cow'

Amtrak's new spokes-beings will be chickens toting train travel signs. I see a big legal battle looming with Chik-Fil-A.

When Meanie sings the Blues, I hear Sam Barry on harmonica accompaniment.

Gives new meaning to "riding in a cattle car".

And if the railroad gets you there late -- suet!

great comment meanie. you nailed it.
pass the ketchup.

but it wont help amtrak be on time.

I am taking Amtrak this afternoon, it so happens. We'll see.....

I would have thought that the risk of explosion would be the first thing on your mind.

I don't see the advantage to burning rendered fat over petroleum. Cost? Reduced emissions?

Why not use the methane produced by live cows?
