TAGS splice

Ever wonder what you'd look like if you were half animal? Be honest! Well, thanks to an intriguing and slightly terrifying app to promote the new flick 'Splice' (about two rogue scientists -- played by Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody -- who splice together human and animal DNA), you can channel your own inner Cat Lady without all of the plastic surgery bills.

To freak yourself out, just go to "Splice Yourself", upload a photo of yourself (looking straight ahead, no smiling) to see what you'd look like with more than a splash of animal DNA. Brace yourself: this ain't no 'Teen Wolf' scenario! The results are totally creepy and alien looking, like the creature Dren from the film. I mustered up the courage to splice myself. And no, I did not like what I saw.

Naturally, this little exercise got me thinking about other potential human/ animal hybrids. So, apropos of "Splice Yourself", here are two lists. The first is of human/animal splices I'd like to see. The second is of human/ animal hybrids I suspect have already happened. Don't pretend you've never wondered how Jerry got his horseface, or how Dog came about his long, flowing, aggressive mane of hair.

1. Angelina Jolie and an angelfish. In an attempt to create the world's largest pair of lips, sans collagen injections.

2. Johnny Depp and a puma. So lithe. So handsome. So intense. It'd be like Johnny x10, animal style!

3. Katherine Heigl and a frog. I don't think this combo would be particularly attractive, but it just might take Heigl's smugness down a notch or two. Who knows, though – she may just spin it in her own way and boast of her super-human froggy-ness.

4. Katie Holmes and an owl. She could use some wisdom behind her eyes. It'd be a nice departure from her current perma-glazed-over look.

5. Zac Efron and a peacock. The only animal even prettier than Mr. Efron. Just imagine what a breathtaking hybrid this combo would produce!

And now, a list of human/ animal hybrids I suspect have already happened:

1. Jerry Seinfeld and a horse. Go ahead, tell me I'm wrong. They even acknowledge his horse-faceness on 'Seinfeld,' in the episode where George is trying to find Jerry in a theater and asks the ticket-taker if he's seen a guy with a horse face. Slam dunk!

2. Dog the Bounty Hunter and a lion. It's more than just the golden mane. It's the predatory look in his eyes, the tough skin and the general air of aggression.

3. Stephen Tyler and an orangutan. How else can you explain the lips, the hair and the wacky moves? Oh, right. Drugs.

4. Katy Perry and a deer. There's something a little inhuman about big, wide doe eyes. Maybe her mom kissed a deer and liked it.

5. Carrot Top and a daubentonia. Not sure what a daubentonia is? Look it up. Then you'll see.
