First black US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, are to become part of a unique and bizarre clinical experiment designed to safeguard the future of the presidency, and the security of the great American nation - the pair are to be cloned.
The idea of cloning the pair came after a wealthy couple in Florida paid $150,000 for what a South Korean laboratory claims is the world's first commercially cloned dog, Lancelot.
Lancelot Encore is reportedly an exact duplicate of Lancelot, and it's thought that DNA taken from the President and his wife could be used to replicate them for future generations to enjoy.
Several years ago Edgar and Nina Otto froze the DNA of their dog, Lancelot. When the dog died, biotech firm Best Friends Again built another one, and now claim that Lancelot Encore is every bit as good as the old one.
The laboratory in South Korea, BioArts, includes a scientist that lost his research professorship at Seoul University in 2004, after fraudulently claiming he'd cloned human embryos and stem cells.
White House aides were busy collecting President Obama's toenail clippings, and Mrs Obama's used tampons this morning, before sending them to Seoul.
Mr Obama will, once again, be making his way into the history books, this time as the First Black Cloned US President, a fact that will, no doubt, be celebrated by billions of black people the whole world over.
