Thieves Actually Steal Used Cooking Oil

I can’t believe it, but someone actually stole used cooking oil. Seriously, click on the link. Someone actually stole 1000 gallons of used cooking oil from a Burger King in Nebraska City. Just as unbelievable, the police are actually looking for them.

Okay, I get that this stuff must have a value. I know it’s often used in cosmetics and the article also says it can be used to make biodiesel. Still, used cooking oil? I will repeat, used.

The stuff is disgusting. I’ve had to empty it before. It’s rancid. 1000 gallons? That had to have taken an awful lot of effort, some money as well. Just how much does used cooking oil go for? I keep thinking of that episode of Beavis and Butthead where they’re told to change the fryer oil at work and end up replacing it with motor oil.

Really? This pays better than a real job?
