There's Just One Tiny Catch

Researchers are hot on the trail of a promising treatment for spinal injuries. It really looks like a winner! There's only one thing: you'll turn blue.

Considering the downside, it seems a small price to pay.

So that explains the Blue Man Group.

Rodents of unusual colour, huh? I'm sure to someone somewhere this is just another sign of the apocralypse.

On the other hand if it is dumb and works, it isn't dumb.

Hey, then you could claim discrimination on the basis of color....

"then you could claim discrimination on the basis of color"

Then you could claim special treatment on the basis of color. (FIFY)

Does a blue man who was formerly white trump a black man on the afirmative action list? What about a white woman? Call the lawyers!

Two by two, hands of blue.

There are enough people now who don't mind turning blue--permanently--from using cure-alls that don't cure anything at all (colloidal silver, in this case.) Google "argyria."

Blue skin and walk with a limp or normal hue skin and permanently confined to a wheelchair.

Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Smurf you! I can WALK now!

Oh, I would totally go for the blue look and still walking!
