Why can't they do these experiments on animals other than humans?

Oh, right, harming animals is evil.

They should be taken out into the street and shot like dogs. You can’t combine humans and animals unless you are a murderer.

These scientists need to try a little harder. The feasibility of interspecies breeding has already been demonstrated in nature. It is obvious, for instance, that Mike Huckabee is the product of a union between Droopy the dog and a human female.

Not bad. Let me try my hand at photo-shopping a human being with a beast of the field.
