Glowing In The Dark Has Done Nothing For His Sex Life.

The world of science has made another miraculous breakthrough! In Japan researchers have managed to rework the genes of monkeys so that they glow green in the dark. Furthermore the monkeys were able to pass this 'glow in the dark' gene on to their siblings.

The scientists believe this is a step towards gene manipulation that can be used to induce cancers and other diseases in monkeys that can be studied to help mankind. Mankind as a whole is happy about this although a lot of the monkeys are a tad upset.

The monkey world isn't too crazy about shining in the dark either. The affected monkeys have already complained of insomnia and stunted sexual activity because of the constant glow. They also say that they are attracting insects drawn by the light.

The new development does have its plus side for the simians, though. Many are getting jobs as theater ushers and night lights for darkness-challenged children. Also the glow makes it easier for them to find their keys at night.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
