Oh, come now. Bodybuilders (and other strict dieters) sometimes do drink oil (olive oi etc.l) to get good fats. Tastes vile, though.

At first I thought "oh, God, why?" then I remembered that I once had to drink 12 oz of oil to help out my gallbladder... So it's a legit sentence assuming der Mann has stomach problems.

It is interesting to know that there ARE reasons for normal, well-adjusted people to drink oil. Thank you for your insight. :)
