FDA May Say ‘Yea’ to McDNA

Two All-Beef Petri Dish Cultures, Special Sauce…

In a follow-up to an earlier posting, we present this article about the current state of agri-cloning.

Apparently the entire industry can be traced back through mitochondrial chains to John Fisher, an enterprising man who, not satisfied with the lowly ‘Boar Semen Merchant’ on his resume, became president of a company called Prairie State Semen, Inc. …Or, “PSSS”.

Not sure where that other S comes from. They “collect” on Mondays and Thursdays, so be sure to order accordingly.
They’ll send you your prize boar semen UPS Next Day Air.
Better hope Brown doesn’t mix it up with your next order from Swiss Colony.

You can’t make this stuff up.

But as alarming as the idea of eating cloned meat and milk can be, (they call it the ‘yuck factor’), the truth is almost all farmed food eaten today is the result of purposeful genetic selection, careful pollination or grafting, or some other human meddling.

Eventually we’ll get used to it.

The WaPo article concludes with a quote from grocer Mark Nelson: “If the public doesn't want to eat Velveeta made from cloned milk, it ain't gonna happen."

Think on that. A grocers’ advocate is using scare tactics to remind his shoppers how natural and wholesome Velveeta is.
