That creeped the shit out of me
You might want to get rid of the second picture, that's a pretty well-known genetic experiment that totally ruins the article for me. The first picture, however, is brilliant, and Wondertainment gets an upvote.
Oh, sure, they told you it was a "genetic experiment" - what were they supposed to do when the picture went public, admit it was a Dr. Wondertainment kit experiment?
Addendum Herp-Derp-17: On 12/4/20██, several photographs documenting Experiment 1103-2 were found leaked on the [REDACTED] Forums. A cover story claiming the photographs resulted from experimentation with embryonic stem cells was put into place and the remaining photographs were distributed to medical and scientific journals as well as major news agencies per standard procedure.
… I'm sorry it really doesn't work.
Look. Google for "ear mouse": https://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=mouse+ear&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8
There's also the wikipedia entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacanti_mouse
The more than a dozen pictures you get from a simple search https://www.google.com/search?q=mouse+ear&hl=en&client=ubuntu&hs=Gvo&channel=fs&prmd=imvns&source=lnms&tbm=isch&ei=FtRQT6TXCcf-4QTMh5nLDQ&sa=X&oi=mode_link&ct=mode&cd=2&ved=0CA4Q_AUoAQ&biw=1680&bih=829
Plus all manner of articles and essays and crap. Take a few and you can likely find a few scientific papers about it as well.
Also, as a cover story, something that gets intense attention from media and scientists (the people that per definition likes to prod things) well it's pretty much one of the worst I've ever imagined. If this really was the coverup, the foundation would need to explain the mouse in a way that works, then prove it to be repeatable in experimentation. Or more correctly, if they were going for a workable coverup they'd dismiss it as a hoax. Putting the Vacanti mouse on an article really breaks suspension of disbelif.
Also it's been around since 1997 or somesuch.
I second that. Great article, great first picture, but the earmouse is way too easily recognizable.
May contain traces of nuts!
I almost choked on some milk when I read that. Good job.
My boss asked what the *thud* he just heard was, and I had to come up with some other reason for why my forehead would have suddenly come into contact with my desk XD
