Conjoined quintuplets

This story is taken from a respected Peep research facility.


"One of the great mysteries of the Peep species is that these creatures are always born as conjoined quintuplets. Some scientists have theorized that this arrangement, much like pack behavior in other species, serves as a natural protection against predators. As evidence, note that Peeps are most often consumed by predators only after they have been separated from their siblings. Conversely, Peeps which remain attached to their siblings are rarely preyed
upon.

Nevertheless, as Peeps integrate into modern society, there is no ethical reason they should be denied the benefits of individualism, freed from the bonds of their sticky, marshmallow kin.
We thus applied the advances of modern medicine to attempt this miracle separation of these 5 brave volunteers. "

That was hilarious.

Mmm. I like Peeps. Especially after they've had full-body CPR.

This sounds like something that a bioethics researcher might want to look into.

The Hippocratic/Judeo-Christian tradition of medicine and bioethics holds that human beings have been given dominion over peeps. This is a role of stewardship, caring for and appreciating the peeps.
