It was created in a mysterious laboratory using frayed scraps of genes from old plants, insects, and bacteria. The mad scientists who conjured up the genetic slurry had high hopes their freakish creature would arise from the petri dish and cure world hunger. Oh yeah, and also generate massive profit. The corporate giant that manufactures the stuff, MonSTERsanto, specializes in concocting evil schemes to dominate the Earth's seed supply. MonSTERsanto maintains that genetically modified foods are safe for human consumption, but many many many others warn of the chronic health problems it causes to living things - including humans. On top of that, these chimera-like food crops are feared to mutate and evolve and could soon take over the world. Be advised there's even a Frankfish coming soon! It might be prudent to do a little more research on genetically modified foods and make your own decision. Meanwhile, reflect on the insect and bacteria genes mingling around inside your body after you've eaten those corn chips. Mmmmmm! Medium: digital painting by Bob Lizarraga, written by 14.
