This is a wild tangent, but I heard on NPR how the US tanks in Iraq are being 
outfitted with live chickens in the event of a biological attack.  It's called 
Project K.F.C., though I can't recall what it stands for.  

These chicken-canaries, 
caged to tanks, 
bound for the Iraqi a coal mine.

...can we, following Donna Haraway's lead towards the OncoMouse, regard these 
strapped birds as a shared flesh?
