Stephen Colbert Sounds Off on Genetically Modified Dairy Cows

Stephen Colbert made a disturbing discovery on the Colbert Report. Turns out that some wacky Chinese scientists, in another effort to feed the world, are genetically modifying dairy cows by implanting human genes into cow embryos. The result being these poor cows will produce human breast milk.

Colbert wonders what's next -- having the elderly lay eggs? He wants scientists to stop these experiments. Humans aren't supposed to be drinking this trans-species human milk, he states. "We're supposed to drink the emulsion of fat globules of cattle that are forced to lactate nonstop." Yum!
