March of the chimeras

Paging Dr. Moreau... Dr. Moreau to the white courtesy phone... Chimera:

  • A mythological creature with the head of a lion, the body of a goat and the tail of a serpent; one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna.
  • A grotesquerie of the imagination.
  • An organism that contains cells or tissues with a different genotype. These can be mutated cells of the host organism or cells from a different organism or species.
  • Reuters, on 9 Sept 2005:
    Transplants of animal organs into people could take place within a few years because of the acute shortages of donated human organs, a leading scientist said on Friday [9 Sept 2005].
    I'm of two minds of this... On the one hand, the need for this technology is great, and, well, it is kinda cool. On the other hand...

    Yes, but with advances in medical technology, soon you may have many hands to count upon and not all of them human.

    You had to go there, didn't you? Me, I figured I'm allowed one bad joke per day, and mine was 'finger food' ;-)
