Usually, I have to go to CNEWS to find the truly bizarre.
Not today. Nope. Hand delivered, as it were, right into my "in" box. Scientists to create rabbit-human hybrid. WTF? What exactly would be the point of creating a rabbit-human hybrid? To give everyone big ears? Or floppy ears? Or to make a group of extra-fertile people? Okay, maybe the Scottish should try for that, what with their population decline and all...
But of all things, rabbits. And what would we call this new species, as it were? The whole 'Timbit' thing in Canada has given some appeal to Humbits, but I think Bunmans is a strong second.
Of course, a fringe benefit could be the ability to hop. I wonder how high a human could hop if they had the hopping ability of a rabbit. Maybe not over my house, but the shed? The doghouse, at least?
Imagine a police officer with that ability, hunting down a lowly human. One leap and he could squish him.
Okay, maybe I should go read the darned article and see what the point is. But no matter what the convoluted explanation, I still think it's a pretty damn strange idea.
Though with teeth like mine, I suppose I'd be considered very attractive to a half-rabbit...
