Swineshine on my shoulders makes me happy

I have a history of quality pig-blogging here, and this BBC story has all the right ingredients:

Scientists in Taiwan say they have bred three pigs that glow in the dark.
They claim that while other researchers have bred partly fluorescent pigs, theirs are the only pigs in the world which are green through and through.

No, it wasn't enough to breed pigs that only partly glow green. They needed their pigs green through and through!

The point is to be able to find human stem cells after injection -- they will be the only ones not glowing.

Yes, the story has pictures of the pigs glowing in the dark. As if you needed to ask.

The researchers say they hope the new, green pigs will mate with ordinary female pigs to create a new generation.

No, the story doesn't have any pictures of that!
