Sure, this could end badly. But think of the Buffalo wings...

More proof that scientists spend way too much time indoors breathing funny chemicals.

This would be more useful.

"From a quantitative point of view, we're 50 percent there," said Jack Horner . . . By understanding how and when to modify certain molecular mechanisms, countless changes could be within reach. As Horner pointed out, a glow-in-the-dark unicorn is not out of the question.

threw out the plum
and pulled out a glow-in-the-dark unicorn


Horner likened giving a chicken a dinosaurlike tail to breeding a wolf into a Chihuahua, except that it was on an accelerated timescale.

More like the other way 'round...

If successful, KFC will become KFDC...

Col. Sanders: " We're gonna need a bigger bucket."

Let's just face it: Scientists got wedgies and swirlies and whatnot in high school and now they want to kill us all.

Thus spawning a new breed of "Why did the dinosaur cross the road" jokes.

give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. give a man a dino-chicken...

I think KFC is bringing back the Colonel for commercials.....coincidence ?
