[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?
  Interviewer:	Yes.
  Scientist:	Well, uh, she was named for Dolly Parton.
  Interviewer:	Oh.  I see.

Hello, Dolly
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

Micro/macro problem.
Self-repairing or self-replicating
Either or? that is the question.

Hey, Dolly, can you spare a liver?
