    I have always secretly suspected that the world's "top scientists" were actually cats.

    meeces to pieces

    I didn't know it was a joke. I didn't give it any thought actually. It gave me much pleasure (humoristically) at the time to stop to give it any real thought.

    It did bring me to tears (hard to do in print) laughing as I read it.

    A joke. Ok.

    I am as warped as I thought those scientists were. Even. :rolleyes:

    I love life - animals too.

    Thank you. I harbor no animosity toward Midge (though we haven't spoken since my divorce from Ken). :biggrin:
    I also have nothing against mice.

    You know, when I first saw the title to this thread, I was thinking, "Cool, someone is going to discuss the limitations of mice as research models!" :grumpy:

    That was pretty funny though. :rofl:
