RIP Ron Bass
"When I get ahold of you, Mr. Bass, I'm gonna take you and bury your head right in the mat, brother. I'm gonna teach you a little wrestling lesson and a little respect for all these good people around here.
"I'm gonna put the super Southern squeeze on you, daddy. And when I get done, I'm gonna squeeze all that meanness out of you. And I'm gonna turn you over to these people of Memphis and let them whip on you a little when you're down and out." — Hulk Hogan calling out "Outlaw" Ron Bass, wrestling champ from Harrisburg, Ark., in 1979. Bass died last week at the age of 68.
Last week the West Coast-based but Memphis-affiliated biotech company Memphis Meats debuted its first samples of lab-grown chicken and duck.
While the price of lab-produced meat continues to drop, Memphis Meat's chicken still costs about $9,000 per pound to produce, which, as noted by the Business Insider website, is still, "incredibly expensive."
