Coming to a lab near you

So we scientists are going to get to produce human-animal hybrids (and what else are humans? Vegetables? ... OK, other than Polly), rather than having to go to Cornwall to study them in the wild. As always with all new areas of medicine the ludites where out in force, with their collective chant on "We Fear Change!" One of the main arguments to try and cover up their unthinking revulsion at the new was that it was unnatural. Well so are antibiotics, so perhaps next time the ludites get infected with some easily curable illness they should remember their objection to unnatural medical inventions, crawl under a rock, and die.
