Boy, did they get that wrong... MCT OIL???

I was listening to the radio on my way to work today. The radio told me that there's this great product that helps you lose weight and it's on sale right now, well of course it is.

I had to stop driving, I was laughing too hard and would have hit something.

Meet MCT OIL: Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil.  MCT's are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption.  MCT's are metabolized very quickly in the liver and are reported to encourage an increase in energy expenditure, while decreasing fat storage.  Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.

Funny, I thought MCTs were the oil that made IT implementations go more smoothly, that MCTs can help people become more effective and that 'MCT oil' could reduce IT downtime etc. Mmm, maybe there's a campaign idea in here somewhere :-)
