Life Imitates Art?
or The World Gets Freakier Every Day

I've been reading Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake, in which the post-apocalyptic world is inhabited by genetically modified hybrids--pigoons, wolvogs, rakunks, snats, "people" who purr like kittens and whose baboon-inspired butts & privates glow blue when they're ready to mate...

Now I come across the Grapple*.

Gives me the shivers. How 'bout you?


*not genetically modified
