Grown pork? Not really something I want. Now I'm glad pig isn't kosher, won't be eating that unknowingly.
I think the most disturbing part about the fish mutation is the purse. Style'n though.
I like the shirt design, and although I wouldn't eat the pork meat grown in a lab, I think it's pretty cool.
I want I want! Goddess of luck, look kindly upon me!
i want this
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Most poems rhyme
Give me a shirt.
BARIUM COBALT EINSTEIN KOOL-AID TSHIRT
I would love to catch a rainbow; apparently you need the red part of the spectrum to create the pork.
I love that feminine fish. It's a hottie.
Feminine fish. Catching rainbows. What the? And now even meat from a laboratory. Talk about sci-fi turned real! Now if we can just get those transporters and the matter replicators. :o)

All the world is a stage and I get to play with it.
givr mr the shirt or i will do nothing
If only I had this shirt...
Even though the sexual identity of bass is beginning to blur, I can sleep well tonight knowing that we can trap the wonderment of rainbows.
It's good to see that public taking EDCs' impact. We've seen it's studies in schools but people tend to brush it off as a simple side effect that will go away on its own.
that is one funky rainbow
I love the idea of harnessing a rainbow. I also like the idea of growing more tissues, and I would consider using them for certain applications, but nourishment would not be one of them.
I want a T-shirt
i'll be the coolest kid in school if i had this shirt.
i want a tshirttt

Just an FYI, your chances of winning the shirt do not increase with multiple comments. One comment per person, unless you're, you know, discussing something.
i know that but i like to tell peoplez what i think about thier comments and to tell you i want the shirt badly
Wait a sec, is that Charlie Tuna selling Pork chops in drag?
i'd wear it to my mit interview
I would have to wonder at how far out they are from actual marketability on products created this way. It will definately take time to create a market for a meat product created in such a manner. I for one don't subscribe to vegetarianism or anything of the kind but do feel that foods should be natural. While this prototype might be of pure origin just how long will it be before dozens of additives are introduced to make the product more profitable?
For me prease.
