Coming soon? Talking Animals

According to the Washington Post story about a study in Nature, scientists have narrowed down the gene that allows humans to speak instead of grunting like chimps.

Now, they're going to put that gene into mice. Stuart Little?

I think they'll have better luck putting the gene into something a bit brighter than a rodent, like a chimp or orangutan. What will they think of next?
