Some Pig

CNN reports that a Taiwanese research group has bred flourescent green transgenic pigs.

By injecting fluorescent green protein into embryonic pigs, a research team at the island's leading National Taiwan University managed to breed three male transgenic pigs, said professor Wu Shinn-Chih of the university's Institute and Department of Animal Science and Technology.

"There are partially fluorescent green pigs elsewhere, but ours are the only ones in the world that are green from inside out. Even their hearts and internal organs are green," Wu said on Thursday.

I'm sure this comes a good news to a friend of a friend, an artist named Jeff whose site is greenpig.com.

Other famous green pigs include a restaurant, this supposedly radioactive pig found in India, and of course, Tomba's green pig:

To get to the green pig, first you must go to Mushroom Forest and obtain laughing status. Then go to the haunted mansion near Baskar Village. Go on the slide with two pig snouts, and travel to the SMILE! door. Look up and laugh. The door will open and (if you have the green pig bag) there will be the green pig gate. Jump into it. When fighting the pig, jump on him and throw him into the Pig Bag when it's turned your way. Congrats, now you can travel through the Lava Caves.
I had never heard of this game before, and now I'm certain that I never want to play it.
