I was trawling the deep net when I stumbled on this 20121124-224709.jpgAn algal-slug hybrid! How amazing is that, just think of the science-fiction and fantasy stories instantly validated by this discovery.
I could have made a huge list of examples of animate plant monsters from book, film and RPGs, but instead I just thought— “I wonder how long it will be before they engineer a food animal that’s based on this concept…”

My money is on MaccyDs – Veggy-Cow, other contenders might include Tree-Pigs and Leafed-Chickens…
