In a remarkable—if likely controversial—feat, scientists announced today that they have created the first successful human-animal hybrids. The media hails the project as proving the impossible that human cells can be introduced into a non-human organism, survive, and even grow inside a host animal, in this case, pigs.
PigMan? Aren’t we already living this nightmare? TPV can name a few PigMen, and one PigMan of the decade.
“No, this is a new biomedical advance, which has long been a dream and a quandary for scientists hoping to address a critical shortage of donor organs,” the Scientist in charge corrected our misunderstanding.

“No, see it on Fox. This is one of the great advances. People are applauding and screaming. … and they are giving a standing ovation. In fact, Fox said it was the biggest standing ovation since Peyton Manning had won the Super Bowl, and they said it was equal. This advance got a standing ovation. It lasted for a long period of time.”
Oh, indeed, this is not about PigMan, this is about a Man Child. Or, more accurately, a bratty creature whose evolution froze too many decades ago.
