Automatic Armadillo - Hand-made Collage

If we possess the technological know-how to automate an armadillo, it becomes not a question of why, but why not? When others at the academy objected, quibbling over the "ethics" of subjecting these pests of the Southwest to unnecessary biological modification, I had to invoke good old common sense. "Just think about it." I paused for dramatic effect. "How cool would it be to crank up one of these things and let it scrurry across the floor." The silence that followed spoke volumes about the strength of my argument. My grant proposal goes before the review committee tonight and right now I'm feeling pretty confident that I'll get the big thumbs up. I can't wait to call Barbara!
