    Scientists grow "pork" in lab

    Scientists turn stem cells into pork - Yahoo! News-

    This is just crazy. Can't wait for PETA to get ahold of this and start a new attack on hog farmers.

    Re: Scientists grow "pork" in lab

    This stuff still weirds me out. Im not confident in eating meat grown in a lab. Plants are one thing but meat seems scary.

    It's a miracle. Now if they can grow fried bacon right in my belly it truly will be a perfect world

    But how would you taste it? Isnt that where the satisfaction comes from? Bacon tongue would be freaky.

    So we start growing pork in a lab, then the number of pigs rises to out of control numbers. Before you know it, we're all slaves to our new swine overlords. No thank you science, no thank you.

    Scenario:

    If there is a heaping,piping hot pile of bacon and ribs sitting in a bear trap, would you grab at it?

    side note-You arent allowed to spring the trap with anything or grab at it with anything but your hands. This is a choice of walking away or eat it.

    I would use one hand to grab the ribs and bacon thus ensnaring myself. I would then coat that hand with some of the bbq sauce and bacon grease and chew off my own hand to free myself. Then I would enjoy the rest of my ribs and bacon... and severed hand if I'm still hungry.

    Well I, for one, would welcome our new swine overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

    In which case, you would be growing pork in your pants


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
