GM cat: tusk of a narwhal, wings of an eagle. Good at catching mice if nothing else.

       I would vote for this, but solely on the condition that it becomes legal to hunt them (during the open season) for Cat Ivory. Or cull them by similar methods if they were to become a pest. e.g. by existing. Shooting them "on the wing" using a 12-guage would be my preferred method.   

       If they take to perching on my antenna arrays in the eraly mornings, miaowing, I reserve the right to connect the aerials to a high power microwave source, thus frying them where they sit.

       Umm, I must have missed this one in my dictionary of mythology. Please explain.

       The unicorn myth. Okay, so it's a cat not a horse. You got a problem with that?
sild, Jul 04 2002
  

       I think a cat would make a far more interesting unicorn than a horse or a goat. More personality in my opinion. But I wouldn't feel right hunting them, as {8th of 7] suggests. Maybe their tusks could be GMed to fall off like antlers after a while?   

       Oh, and I'm not a virgin - could I still approach one?

       Maybe it's time to vote on a GM ban again....

       How do you propose we realise the myth?
mighty_cheese, Jul 04 2002
  

       [phoenix] But look at the Naked Chickens - not only are they a GM product, they're new and have a real reason for having been "created". I'm not opposed to voting on GM, especially if we only see WIBNI examples here. But there are probably a lot of good ideas that will become more possible as a result of Naked Chickens.

       Could we create flying uni-horned dogs and have them fight the cats? Aerial jousting?   

       Or lions...
pottedstu, Jul 04 2002
  

       how about a cat mixed with the body of a moose, interesting... I like it the possibilities. Never ending, but odd

       Release or realize?

       all these flying uni-horned dogs and cat will just get in the way at quiddich games.
