Meat from genetically modified pigs was stolen from a lab, turned into sausages and eaten by atleast nine people. It may be the first time people in the US have eaten GM meat.

Apparently they "tasted real good".

Sounds like those animal activists that break into labs and free monkeys and rats; except this time the "freed" animals were lunch. What a riot!

I suspect that ultimately, Monsanto is behind this.

Another reason for ParisParamus to think Florida is a land of mutants.

Uh oh.... I live in Florida... and I just ate some sausage the other day... and it tasted real good. I am cold and frightened.

Some bureaucrat told these scientists they'd get a salary increase when pigs fly. They've been working on it ever since.

Hmm... I've been pondering this situation. Being a Floridian, I fear the introduction of pig-like supermutants might further unbalance our fledgling democracy turned banana republic. Wait! Floridian Develops Pig-Like Superpowers ... I knew that sounded familiar. Akk!
