So Arizona, not satisfied with its nasty "we can stop you if you look like you might be from somewhere south of the border" nastiness and how stupid the rest of the world has deemed them because of it, has decided to outlaw the creation of human-animal hybrids.

Yes, folks, they felt the need to make it a felony to "intentionally or knowingly creating a human-animal hybrid." Not satisfied with this tidbit of craziness, they go on.

The bill, which passed 16 to 12, would prohibit anyone in the state from “creating or attempting to create an in vitro human embryo by any means other than fertilization of a human egg by a human sperm.”

The measure would also outlaw “transferring or attempting to transfer a human embryo into a nonhuman womb,” “transferring or attempting to transfer a nonhuman embryo into a human womb” and “transporting or receiving for any purpose a human-animal hybrid.”
Sounds like they covered all the bases. No creation of human-animal hyrbrids. Check. No creating "human" embryos in vitro with something other than human DNA. Check. No cross-species surrogacy. Check. No crossing state-lines with said hypothetical hybrid. Check.

One problem. At the current state of technology, no one can make the damn things. Oh, and if its a felony to knowingly create this hyrbrid, what happens if you make one UNintentionally? Cause, you know, it's possible.

In crazy land.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder. Man, they've been pulling out all the stops. I keep thinking if the Republican party keeps allowing in people that are that goofy, eventually they will become defunct as a party. Which is too bad, having once been the party of Lincoln. But, then again, I think Grant and his catering to big business set the tone for the rest of the time.

My grandfather, a moderate, fiscal Republican, must be staring down at his party in horror.

When hybrid humans are legal again, I want me some wings.

I dunno. I think it would improve the human race if we crossed humans with cats. Cats are better. Just ask mine.
