SOW IN THE DARK

Scientists in Taiwan announced today that the've successfully bred three pigs that glow in the dark. This is no joke, people. They claim theirs are the only pigs in the world which are fluorescent green through and through. Technically speaking, the pigs are transgenic, created by adding genetic material from jellyfish into normal pig embryos. I guess the hope is that Christmas ham leftovers will someday double as a nightlight. Or perhaps sausage links will become easy-to-eat glow-in-the-dark treats. They could start serving sausage nibblers at the movies.

This little piggy glowed all the way home.

How the hell is crap like this going on in my world? Unless...NO! Unless it's not my world anymore. Oh shit.

I'd better go feed the meter after all.

Too bad Dr. Suess died before he saw his dream realized. Maybe now some bored-ass Chinese scientists could come up with some glowing green eggs to complete the "Sam I Am" Platter at the local Taipei Denny's. How worthless is this "scientific" "advancement"? And what the hell are these crap little countries doing with "scientists" anyway? Their annual budget has got to be less than what's jingling in my pocket right now. Maybe if they stopped paying these idiots to feed piglets glow-in-the-dark Silly Putty and yanked them out of their "labs" and put 'em out in the paddy behind some sort of water-bison or whatever like everyone else in that crap country they could stop having to claim "cheap plastic dildoes" as their chief export. Dumbasses (Made in Taiwan).

I SEE YOU!
