It's a dream come true. Scientists in Taiwan have found a solution to the problem that has plagued mankind for centuries. Let me lay out the scenario for ya:
It's three A.M. you get up to eat a snack of pork rinds, ham and bacon. As you enter the kitchen you go to turn the light on and the switch breaks off in your hand.
Alone in the dark you wonder "how can I eat this porcine platter with no illumination?"
HOW MANY TIMES HAS THIS HAPPEN TO YOU??
Many, I'm willing to bet. In the past we have been forced to open the fridge and sit basking in the glare of the small bulb inside the fridge as we gorged on pork.
Scientists in Taiwan have bred pigs that "glow in the dark".
And they aren't the only ones. Other researchers have bred partly fluorescent pigs, but THESE porkers truly glow in the dark.
The pigs were made "Dr. Moreau" style by combining the DNA of a jelly fish with a pig. I can only imagine what the pigs thought.
PIG ONE: Whoa! I don't know what they put in the feed around here but you are totally glowing.
PIG TWO: Back off Brokeback Babe: Pig in the City! I'm straight.
PIG ONE: You are so vain, you know not everyone here wants to sleep with you.
PIG TWO: Yeah, but you do. Right?
PIG ONE: Yes.
Anyway, the researchers hope glowing pigs will help stem cell research, and the study of human disease.
The scientists say that the glowing pigs are green throughout. Everything including their internal organs are green tinged.
Take a look at this photo:
I think that's what the pigs look like. Or maybe Paris Hilton made some real freaky video I didn't know about.
