Pan vs Progress

A satire on celebrity and genetic modification. The god Pan comes to Earth and because of his goats' legs is mistaken for a genetically modified organism. He becomes famous, appears on a couple of TV shows, and tries to remember that his original reason for coming to Earth is to thwart the intentions of his rival Joe Progress, a thoroughly modern deity. Unfortunately, a big genetics company has the patent on any mix of goat and human genes.
