I Do Not Like Them, Sam I Am

Father Kish sent me an article about green ham:

Scientists in Taiwan say they have bred three pigs that “glow in the dark”.

They claim that while other researchers have bred partly fluorescent pigs, theirs are the only pigs in the world which are green through and through . . .

They are the only ones that are green from the inside out. Even their heart and internal organs are green, the researchers say . . .

In daylight, the researchers say the pigs’ eyes, teeth and trotters look green. Their skin has a greenish tinge.

In the dark, shine a blue light on them and they glow torch-light bright.

Why on earth would one wish to possess a green glowing pig?



  1. night-light, maybe?

  2. I think this is a plan for those who are trying to avoid the health hazards of eating red meat. =)

  3. Given that pork is regarded as brain food, I guess this florescent pig will help the dim-witted to be BRIGHTER!
