Zebras

“How old is it?

Six months

“You only fed the parents genetically modified crops?”

Yes and the offspring

“Aren’t these same crops being sold to the public?”

In limited areas, yes.

 Newspaper headline the next day:

‘Baby born in America with the head of a bird and the tail of a cat. Doctors don’t know the cause of this phenomenon just yet. Baby is healthy and chirping.’
