Is it okay to sleep on a bed of beef fat?

I have a good relationship with my neighborhood butcher and he lets me buy chunks of beef fat at a good price, they are smaller chunks of fat but once you get them all together there is enough to make a thin mattress of beef fat.

So I made a mattress out of the beef fat but after seven weeks I'm concerned that some of the beef fat that makes up my mattress might be going bad, it smells a little putrid.

So my question is should I abandon the mattress of possibly rancid beef fat and go back to my regular mattress, or should I stick it out no matter how bad the beef mattress smells?

A paleo enthusiast called "Poop Master" who sleeps on a rotting bed of beef fat. The NYTimes will be knocking on your door for an interview.

You might prefer a bed of mushy brown bananas.

Is that for real? I think you need to contact the Guinness Book of World records.

Yes, it would seem your bed is going bad and probably rotting. We know paleo man slept on beds of animal fat, but today there are too many neolithic bacteria that make such a practice risky. Remember: paleo isn't about reenactment!

If you want to sleep on a "fat bed", I recommend coconut oil. It will kill every bad bacteria that crosses its path and leave only all the good ones, essentially giving you a probiotic bed. Plus, the medium chain triglycerides will soak through your skin while you sleep, increasing your metabolism and making you ripped! I have it on good authority that Hugh Jackman does this to prepare for roles.

You should have asked him to slice up a pork belly for you as a mattress protector.
