Eat Your Tee Shirt!

I came across this article today at AllRecipes. It seems that researchers have found a way to make cotton edible. Well, cotton seeds, anyway. I could explain it all here, but the article describes it better. You can find it here

It brings new meaning to the term “cottonmouth!” Let me know what you think. Or, to paraphrase Dori, “keep on scrolling!”

So is your thread title somewhat misleading?

Totally, since tee shirts are not made of cotton seeds.

Well, once again, I'll be able to sleep tonight knowing that GG has corrected one of life's biggest frauds... t-shirts (tee shirts) aren't made form cotton seeds. Shame on you, Joel, for misleading us.

I'm still hoping that Bucky will chime in about edible clothing.
