Subject: Thinking of ewe
[Overheard at the end of an interview on NPR (and paraphrased by me)
Interviewer: Finally, could you tell us why you named the clone "Dolly?"
Scientist: Oh. Gee, no one has asked us that before, but, well, ...
You know that she was cloned from a bit of er, mammary tissue?
Scientist: Well, uh, she was named for Dolly Parton.
Interviewer: Oh. I see.

I see two of ewe, Dolly
It's so nice to see how well
that you have grown.
But it's not swell, Dolly
You're a clone, Dolly
Without a soul you're going to go
straight to hell.
Self-repairing or self-replicating
Either or? that is the question.
Hey, Dolly, can you spare a liver?
