Fluorescent Pigs Give Hope To Those Who Lose Their Ham At Night

From the BBC:

Scientists in Taiwan say they have bred three pigs that glow in the dark.

They claim that while other researchers have bred partly fluorescent pigs, theirs are the only pigs in the world which are green through and through.

Taiwan is not claiming a world first. Others have bred partially fluorescent pigs before. But the researchers insist the three pigs they have produced are better.

The scientists will use the transgenic pigs to study human disease. Because the pig's genetic material is green, it is easy to spot.

This is a wonderfully strange world that we live in.

That doesn't rhyme at all.

But I thoroughly concur.

The only rhymes that I could think of would have gotten you hits from people searching for naked pictures of Brian Cox.
