I bet you didn't know that "the concept of Santa Claus’ features is an historical remnant from before the phylogenetic divergence between prokaryotes and eukaryotes".
The authors state that they "are further studying the Hoho2 transgenic Homo sapiens quadruplicates generated in the process of this paper to assay other Santa Claus related features such as seasonal temperamental variations, affinity to chimneys and affection to red clothing. We expect to report a follow-up study on these matter in due time".
Does anyone know whether this seminal research has been published yet?
p.s. Digital Cuttlefish has outdone himself with the seasonal "It was Cephalopodmas". Go and check it out!
