The Lord God Himself came down from heaven today to make his first appearance in court over His civil dispute with geneticists.
God feels the scientists are in breach of His copyright over every living thing on Earth, and through their reverse engineering of His creation are also impinging on the many thousands of patents He has personally drawn up over the years.
The scientists are arguing their work is merely a parody, or spoof, of God's work and are, in their own right, original creations. God begs to differ, however, saying their creations include too large a proportion of His work.
The Almighty commented: "If they created a creature with an arse for a mouth and nobs for fingers, then maybe I'd be cool with that. But they're just making sheep. I made sheep - that's mine!"
The trial is expected to continue for eternity. God is hoping to win by default.
