Keep Your Eye on These Little Guys

This little fella is a transgenic fluorescent green pig, bred by the National Taiwan University, the same people who brought us transgenic glowing fish. And sure, he looks funny, but he may be the light at the end of the tunnel for those who have long prayed for transgenic glowing bacon. I'm going to take a wait and see attitude on the bacon, but I think this new animal may have a more important role to play. I suspect that if this porcine little guy sprouts (transgenic glowing) wings, and starts flying circles over Taipei, we'll soon see the Democrats giving us a middle class tax cut. Fingers? Crossed.

The "evolution" of lil' porker ...... kinda like the "evolution' of the Democrats on policies....forced to match the desired traits!

From a recent "Mallard Filmore" editorial cartoon: The Democrats' 2007 resolutions: We resolve to raise middle-income taxes, because the rich don't care, and the poor don't pay any.

I'm looking forward to a new Christmas song about "Piggy the Green-Nosed Porker".
