Submission + - Can you patent a steak? (

DutchUncle writes: Someone at Oklahoma State University has "discovered" a new steak. By now I would have thought that every possible part of a cow was already discovered, not to mention used for something. I can understand trademarking a name for a particular cut of meat; I can understand copyrighting the published instructions on what to cut where; but can this be novel enough for a patent?

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
