TO THE "D" TO THE "N" TO THE "A"
lil' squirt!
Another advance has been made in the genetics field as scientists announced they have mapped out the DNA code for a tiny aquatic critter known as the sea squirt. Nope, I've never heard of it either, but apparently it's been known and chronicled since the days of Aristotle. It gets it's name from the way it intakes water from one end, absorbs the nutrients, and then squirts that water out the other end. Charming.

If this genetics jazz really rings your bell, perhaps you'd like to consider a vial of reindeer DNA as a holiday gift.
