“British Airways looks to recycled cooking oil fuel to cut jet emissions”
The Guardian

Attention folks, this is your captain speaking:
I know a few of you might have concerns
About the smell you think is oil leaking;
Don’t worry, folks, that’s just the way it burns.

We’ll make the friendly skies a whole lot greener;
We’re trying to do a whole new kind of thing
By finding fuels that drive our engines cleaner
At Wendy’s, Waffle House, and Burger King.
