When Scottish scientists successfully cloned Dolly the sheep, some sick individuals joked that the scientific breakthrough was to the delight of "lonely" farmers all over the UK.
Having never been to the UK and not knowing any lonely farmers personally, I don't fully appreciate or understand the joke, but it sure sounds morbid and twisted. So my pledge to you is that I will never again blog about lonely farmers and their sheep in the same post.
Ah! The irony continues. Of all places in the world, my country of origin Korea is home to the first cloned dog ever. Meet Snupy.
I still tell people that I am the first Korean ever to get a dog from the pound, as opposed to by the pound.
That stupid joke never gets old.
