They've managed to find an enzyme that regulates how fat mice get when overeating. The mouse on the right ate more than the mouse on the left.

That's good news to me because I look like the mouse on the left. That's right, I have whiskers, four legs and a tail.

I bear a resemblance in the beady eyes area.

When it comes to things like this (i.e. animal resemblance) I have one position that I will repeat until my fiery death: I would gladly trade in a percentage of brain power if it resulted in getting back the prehensile tail and feet.

Just think of the advantages, and you'd agree. Most everyone I've told this to has.

Unfortunately, mice lack a prehensile tail and, to my understanding, their hind paws aren't terribly useful for grasping either. And, after all, most of humanity's ability to use tools- which confers a <b>huge</b> competitive advantage over other animals- comes from our having opposable thumbs, which mice most certainly lack.

As do most, if not all, other animals,

Aahh, my fault. I was referring to our tree-dwelling ancestors, who do have the prehensile tail and feet.

It was the middle of the day, and I had (and still have) several test to make up before lunch. Forgive the omission of key words.

But wait, don't rule it out. What if you were the mouse without the fat enzyme?

I think I'd rather go for the trade made in "Young Frankenstein".
