Send in the Clones

Posted in: Comment

According to the Telegraph, Britain's food safety watchdog has admitted it doesn't know how many cloned embryos have entered Britain after meat produced from cloned cows ended up in food. Tim Smith, chief executive of the Food Standards Agency, is reported as saying it is unsure if any other cloned embryos had been imported.

As Sondheim almost noted in his enigmatic lyric from A Little Night Music:
Don't you love farce?
No one's fault I fear.
I thought that you'd want what I want.
Sorry, my dear.
But where are the clones?
Quick, send in the clones.
Don't bother, they're here.

Time, once more for all UK burger and pie eaters to worry.  None of this would have happened if OFSCOFF had been given responsibility.

  • According to BBC news, potatoes are also clones. This could be good news for obesity campaigners who want us (me) to cut down on the chips.
