I was trying to give an example to a friend of the dangers of cloning.
I said, "Well, suppose Pamela Anderson or whoever the reigning supermodel
is could license out the rights to her genetic code. Then parents might
make their daughters clones of Pamela Anderson, and you'd have millions
of cloned supermodels running about... um... Actually, that would be a
benefit, wouldn't it?"
