Chickie-Nobs, anyone?

Maybe it's just me, but every time I see this headline, I can't help but think of the genetically engineered chicken-nugget-producing creatures in Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel Oryx and Crake. (shudder . . . . )

Now, I'm no Jeremy Rifkin, but something tells me that meat "manufacture" isn't too far out in the future. (See Linda's post below.) Can't help but wonder: is it really a smart idea for us to eat manmade animal parts? And. . . . how would we know?
