Dear Listers,
  	I am expecting the following samples for paraffin embedding sometime
soon -- "wolf ovaries have been preserved in tequila for the past 6 months
or so".   I first assumed that this was a joke but apparently they are
serious--this is a reproductive physiology project from an ecology
lab.  Any comments are welcome--levity included.  I can hear your laughter
already!   My questions:
  	--has anyone used tequila as a fixative?
	-- is the embedding worth pursuing?
