Don't Have a Cow, Man!

Britain's mad scientists are at it again. They now have government approval to go ahead with the first human-animal embryo trials -- in this case, human-cow hybrids.

Scientists at King's College London and the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne will conduct experiments involving the injection human DNA into empty cow eggs in order to create "cytoplasmic hybrids," which, in genetic terms, are 99.9% human.

All ethical questions aside, I'm afraid of an army of mutant minotaurs rising up and trying to take over the world. Where's Theseus when you need him?

They should make centaurs instead. Centaurs fought on Aslan's side, so that would be more ethical.
