Scientists say evidence is mounting that creating healthy animals through cloning is more difficult than they had expected…In one example that seems like science fiction come true, some cloned mice that appeared normal suddenly, as young adults, grew grotesquely fat.
—The New York Times


Rabbit #43, 6 weeks, 1 day
Abnormally phat.

Monkey #67, 7 weeks, 4 days
Instead of throwing own feces, hurls witty bon mots.

Mouse #14, 8 weeks, 3 days
Refuses to run in the spinning wheel; doesn’t "see the point anymore."

Chimpanzee #432, 18 weeks, 2 days
Thought "Chocolat" should have won Best Picture.

Rabbit #25, 20 weeks
Developed only mild allergic reaction after cosmetics repeatedly applied to eyeballs.

Rat #287, 27 weeks
Tweed vest I knitted for him makes him look fat. (Possible genetic defect on my part?)

Mouse #55, 32 weeks, 6 days
Seems somewhat sluggish. Also, has grown human head.

Rat #356, 54 weeks
He’s just like his father.

Unicorn #231, 57 weeks, 6 days
Has grown to twice the size of an average mythical creature.

RATT #2, 60 weeks
Lacks the brash, melodic underpinnings that made "Round and Round" a Top 40 hit in 1984.

Mouse #23876, 66 weeks
Prematurely aged; already wants to leave home and make it on his own, maybe get a roommate or something.

Human females #7, 14 years
Adorableness should have worn thin weeks ago, yet Project Olsen continues to win hearts.
