FLAGSTAFF, Arizona - The Dry Heat Scientific Research Center located in Flagstaff announced on March 28, that it had just successfully cloned the first skunk in the history of civilized cloning.
Dr. Holland Hildegarde Taffytree, 58, director of the research center told The Cucamonga Chit Chat Chronicle that after seven months of research and experimenting the center amazingly cloned a male skunk.
Dr. Taffytree, who received her Animal Husbandry Degree at Third Coast University in Galveston, stated that she personally felt that the experiment was a total success and that the $950,000 research study federal grant was well worth the cost.
But unfortunately President Obama did not share the doctor's enthusiastic excitement since he texted her and stated that cloning a skunk has got to be the biggest cockamamie idea that anyone has ever thought of.
The president said that it sounded like something that the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would do.
Dr. Taffytree texted the president back stating that he was wrong and that skunk cloning would lead to other beneficial clonings such as the cloning of St. Bernard dogs, breeding bulls, and Budweiser Clydesdale horses.
President Obama let her know that he did not share her belief and informed her that the United States government would be requiring the Dry Heat Scientific Research Center to reimburse the U.S. government the total $950,000 grant amount plus interest.
Dr. Taffytree told the president that she would be appealing the reimbursement directive to the Federal Federation of Animal Husbandry. The president told her to be his guest.
SIDENOTE: Dr. Taffytree will certainly be surprised when she learns that President Obama, Vice-President Biden, and the president's wife, Michelle Obama make up the three-member board of directors of The Federal Federation of Animal Husbandry.
