Since it seems that gene-splicing has become a reality, all those old jokes about crossing a parrot with a centipede are within the realm of possibility. Here are a few examples of what could happen.
Cross an Indian monkey with a vine of the legume family and a plant with yellow cup-shaped flowers and you'll get a Rhesus Peanut Buttercup.

Cross an armadillo with a hammerhead shark and you can keep your refrigerator smelling fresh with an Arm & Hammerhead shark.
Cross a parrot with an alligator and when the Parrigator asks you for a cracker, you'd be well advised to give it one.
