Any unethical hack journalist can work a plug of his company’s supplement line into a “science article.” But it takes the great TC Luoma to do it in a GYM ETIQUETTE article:
We know you’re into cheap, bargain basement protein powder that comes from China because you’d rather spend your shekels on Halo 6: Rage of the Accountants, but your digestive problems are killing us…you look like a guy who has sneaky farts. It’s written all over your cheap-protein eating face…Stay home, fart yourself dry in the car before you come in, or switch to a high-grade protein powder.
So if you do not use Biotest PLAZMA you:
- love China and hate America
- are a video game-playing nerd
- are hated by both “dangerously hardcore serious lifters” and sexy fitness models
- poop your pants
Shockingly there was no direct link to a Biotest product in the article. “High-grade protein powder” would have looked perfect in dark blue. Someone on the web design team is getting fired as we speak, since I’m sure this oversight cost Tim Patterson millions – millions which no doubt he would have plowed back into R&D (i.e. buying stock photos of people in lab coats)
