As gross as this sounds, it's real science. Back when I worked in a cancer research lab in the 1970's, we generally just excised the tumor for blending rather than homogenize the entire mouse. Before you ask--and we all did--the blending was to get cells to small enough bits to be put under slides for microscope study.

Send that Polytron to Australia!

The Bass-O-Matic lives!


I don't think I want a mouse smoothie

If it works on rats, send this polytron to Washington!

Mouse soup sounds delicious, with croutons! I suppose.

It's more than overdue for a scale-up to handle squirrels.
