CNN reports that scientists have genetically engineered frogs without

HEADS! They actually kept some alive for a week.

 

This opens the door for HEADLESS human clones for use as organ donors.

The scientists feel this will defuse the xtian objections about ethics as

the clones will have no brain and won't be classified as "alive".

 

Should this come to pass I suggest these clones be nicknamed

ICHABODS. There it is in writing, all copyrighted nice and legal.

 

Wait a minute...what if I should ever need an ear transplant?

 

And what if a female Ichabod gets pregnant? (perverted lab techs ya know)

Can she (er, it) get an abortion?

I saw an interview with the director of the laboratory in Bath, England

where this was accomplished. His name was Dr. Jonathan Slack.
