Well of Course

A headline at Science 2.0 says that the recently-mapped genome of a particular parasite worm that afflicts pigs could lead to treatments for several stubborn diseases, including biggies like multiple sclerosis. Here's the headline:

Parasitic worms of pigs could provide new treatments of human diseases

It could also provide a new name with which to refer to one's opponent in an upcoming election: "I, of course, have always supported the existence of puppies. But my opponent, that parasitic worm of pigs, has never once denied that his ultimate goal is the elimination of every puppy on earth!"
