I realized the other day that the blue and white mice I made bear a striking resemblance to some medical study mice who got popular over the summer.
They are blue because they were treated with "Brilliant Blue G." This compound has been shown to reduce the severity of spinal cord injuries. It has also been used to make your M&M's and Gatorade look pretty. The temporary change in skin color seems to be the only negative side effect.
After being injected with it, the broke backed mice were able to walk again! Yay!
