In what will surely be a major setback to anyone hoping to genetically engineer the world’s first mermaid or centaur, today, Senator Mary Landrieu joined 19 Republicans in co-sponsoring Senator Brownback’s Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act, a piece of policy that, as Politico points out, is modeled after a bill recently signed by our very own Governor, Bobby Jindal.
Politico also points out that the legislation fails to give a specific example of what these human-animal hybrids would look like, but isn’t it obvious?
I agree with this legislation. No hybrids! It would get way too confusing.
I have one suggestion, however. While we’re at it, why don’t we amend the bill to include a ban on reanimating corpses?
