Funny Balls

I like this picture, which ran alongside a "News & Views" in Nature Reviews Cancer this month.  If (and I emphasize the if) this picture has any relation to the story that it is next to, then the light blue ball with a "black" (green) eye is "mutant FGFR3" while the smirking purple ball is "phage-displayed inhibitory antibody."  Presumably the light ball is angry because he is no longer causing cancer in mouse xenograft models.
