This is so narsty. Read this before lunch if you're trying to lose weight.
From BoingBoing comes possibly one of the most disgusting sentences I've ever read:
A curator at NY-MOMA had to euthanize a living leather jacket made from
humanmouse stem-cells -- the art-work had grown out of control and threatened to overflow its containment unit.
This brings to mind the New York Times article about Peta offering $1 million prize to the first person who invents commercially viable in vitro meat.
Technology is getting out of hand--don't they know this is how horror movies happen?! That curator may think he euthanized the mouse jacket. But now it's crawling out of some Dumpster outside the MoMA, and it's not happy. Working title:
My Mousy Jacket Euthenasia Gone Wild. Also, how exactly does one euthanize a mouse-meat jacket, if it doesn't have a central nervous system, heart or brain? Chop it up? Hope it's not like starfish!
