Go Fish

Despite having the Terminator as our governor, California continues to express a Luddite attitude towards genetic engineering. California just became the first state to ban the sale of transgenic fish as pets.

GloFish were originally developed to help detect waterborne pollutants, but have found a much more lucrative niche as pets. These zebrafish have extra genes from sea anemones to give them their fluorescent glow.

To those who say that tampering with nature are wrong, I cite Blinky, the three-eyed superfish from The Simpsons.
