The End is Nigh!

I thought it was bad when scientists were tinkering with space radiation that would eventually spawn galaxy-conquering Green Slime, but this is even worse: now they’re propagating twelve-headed freshwater jellyfish! What possible use could these be, other than to murder unsuspecting beachgoers?

If scientists want to play God and manipulate the genes of some animal, why not work on making mosquitoes headless? Or a powder we could spray on politicians that would make them honest, or at least silent, or preferably both? Must they choose a nasty, vicious, mindless creature and make it even deadlier?

Actually, 'nasty, vicious, mindless creatures' pretty much describes Congress.
