Researchers at Fooles-Holyday Institute claim they have discovered a new species of life form. This new life form appears to be an amalgamation of multiple species, including archaea, bacteria, and eukaryote cell lines. According to one of the scientists, Eloy d’Amerval, the new life form is a hybrid “plant-human” capable of “high order reasoning, language capabilities, communication, photosynthesis, and self-reproduction.”

Another researcher, Sizdah Bedar, calls the discovery the greatest of the 21st century. “What the researchers at Fooles-Holyday Institute discovered is truly the missing link in the evolutionary process we’ve been searching for since time began. This discovery will change the way we think about the past as well as provide tremendous insight as to how to live and survive in the future,” says Bedar.

Some in the scientific community are a bit skeptical until all of the data is reviewed. According to one eminent Scottish scientist, “Dinna laugh, dinna smile. Hunt the gowk another mile.” Another scientist felt that the ability to self-replicate would be the end of the world (or at least the end of Valentine’s Day). Regardless, this discovery will set the scientific community abuzz until the data is reviewed and published. Until then, we will not be fooled…

Or will we?
