Cloning

The townspeople had thought they were done for until help arrived from an unexpected source. As they waved good-bye to the departing crowd of heroes, they clutched the silver bullets left by the helpful strangers to their bosoms. They would be forever grateful to the Clone Ranger.

Having a clone made of myself seemed like a good idea at the time; narcissism aside, I'd be guaranteed to have someone endlessly fascinated with me, not to mention the spare parts.

The newborn sheep should have looked exactly like every other one, especially since it was the world's first living clone, but it was obvious at a glance that this one was special.

Science had entered a whole new era with the birth of the Dali Lamb-a. (SpinyNorma@aol.com)

Sara couldn't tell Tom from his clone. She decided to make love to one of them when the other went to the restroom. She figured it was up to Tom to decide whether he was coming or going. (SMiller234@earthlink.net)

People were appalled at the latest merger of science, biological technology, and entertainment. It was decried as not only a travesty against nature but as overblown and tacky as well but none of that mattered to Leah. She had her tickets and the hell with the critics--she was going to see Cher and Cher Alike. (SpinyNorma@aol.com)
