SpiderGoat Doggerel

There is a company in Montreal planting spider genes
into goat embryos to produce super-strong silk in industrial
quantities. The extraction method? Simple, skim it off their milk.

One of the first commercial uses will be stronger fishing line.
And no doubt a new level of really chewy french cheese.

Why stop there? They could do so much better with just a bit more
gene tampering....

There once was a he goat named Gene
Who`es disposition was terribly mean
When approached by a spider
He lay down beside her
and spun forth a leader so lean

Not 'ku, but it is bad..

A flatulent goat, name of Snyder
Was altered with DNA of spider
On a dare from the boyz,
As to who made the worst noise,
lifted his tail up to rip it,
but 'stead of gas, he got 7x tippet!

Jason, who's glad his mother doesn't read FF@ (but is
sure he's managed to put someone in shock anyway) ;-)

the science of silk
we wallow in self-pity
but we are footballs

goat silk, boars bristle
we are the other white meat
give goats the brush off

make silk from goat's milk
make silk purse from a sow's ear
who holds the purse strings

porcine forever
goat indentity crisis
we are not Charlotte
