Elvis - as a mouse!

This is old news, it happened in 2012, but I heard it on the radio yesterday and it was news to me.

Apparently an artist called Koby Barhad has sequenced DNA from Elvis's hair (bought on ebay, where else) and used it in a mouse model.

The art isn't my cup of tea, you can see Elvis 1 and Elvis 2 and a full write up here: Elvis Mouse. What it did do, which I suppose makes it a good piece of art, was to get me thinking about what an Elvis mouse would look like.

Well, he actually turned into a guinea pig version but here he is: Elvis G. Piggy.

Not as high brow as the artwork that inspired it but hopefully a lot less creepy and a bit more fun!
