I’m not one to shy away from a controversial issue so let me just go on record as saying: Slavery is bad.
Well, to my shock it has come to my attention I, and you, and even me are all slave holders. We harbor trillions of slaves in our cells.
Somewhere in our checkered past our cells took in proteobacteria and we’ve been profiting from their labor ever since.
Our lazy cells keep them imprisoned and soak-up all their energy for our own perverted purposes…
How is it there isn’t a huge outcry for the poor mitochondria?
We need to passes legislation outlawing the keeping of these cell bound slaves.
Open your cells people and let the little mitties into the light!
