It’s hard to know where the inexorable advance of science will lead us, but it surely won’t be without controversy.
Have they cloned a chocolate bunny yet?
Oh I do hope so!
More chocolate for everyone?
I’m not sure, but around Easter it certainly looks as if they have.
Wombats are ok to clone in my book. They all look alike anyway…haha
We Wombies are all very individualistic. But apparently some hu-mans cannot see that.
Shouldn’t you have been replying as Binky? haha
I am Binky. That PDM tag is just there to throw off the FBI who were trying to track me.
What does PDM stand for? and why are you hiding from FBI? Hope you’re not in one of Agent Mulder’s files
It was my secret human alias, but now I’m afraid my cover is blown. I may have to go undercover if I detect an impending crackdown. Governments are not pleased with my moon rocket research project. I think they might have something to hide up there.
Binky has to stop speaking in difficult English!! Mommy hasn’t taught me those words yet @.@
But I agree on wombat Cloning…you are after all an endangered species 😉
I struggled with the big words too…
You could always ask Dr. Barry.
Sorry, Kroten. I’ll try to watch those big words.
Cloning Wombats could be a good thing. With the high price of Beef & Lamb maybe this could provide an alternate meat source. We eat Kangaroo, Wallaby & Emu meat so why not Wombat??? I have a pack of Roo sausages in the freezer at the moment
Hu-mans have some pretty ghastly habits! But I have it on good authority that humans taste like chicken, so remember, what goes around, comes around.
That’s right I forgot Fraz tasted one of us. Maybe that’s why some animals bite people. It’s not meanness it’s hunger & they like chicken
Oops I still had Cedric’s details saved in the comment form.
I suspect one of you is perpetrating identity theft!
And maybe rats, too. Do you guys taste like chicken, or rat?
Why wombat cloning? We aren’t going to be eating them, are we? Bad enough we have roo steaks 🙁
I should hope no one will be eating us! Although some people may have a different opinion. Perhaps they want to clone us because we’re so adorable.
Yes! Let’s clone some wombats and koalas. There definitely ain’t enough of those in my opinion. 🙂
If Australia cloned enough of us, they could export us around the world as good will ambassadors. Just make sure to hide your chocolate.
Wait you mean they aren’t doing so already?
Oh, my bad, those are “zoos”, not “embassies”
There are actually not many wombats in zoos worldwide, other than in Australia. I think Japan has the most, probably about a dozen or so. There are, however, many adopted Wombies living happily throughout the world.
even though wombats are happiest in nature, I would love to see one in my local zoo… only because i live in a place so far from Australia and probably will never see one free and happy in nature
If they have a big enough enclosure, wombats can do well in captivity. Chewbacca, one of the oldest wombats ever recorded, just celebrated his 26th birthday in a Japanese zoo.
It’s too bad more zoos didn’t have wombats, but being essentially nocturnal, they often don’t show well, and Australia rigidly controls their export out of the country.
I’ve seen real wombats in Aus not as cute as the Wombania bunch though 😉
Wombies have been genetically engineered for extra cuteness.
Human’s might taste like chicken but they aren’t cloning humans yet and if they clone chickens there will be plenty to go around. You wombats have a good sense of humor so you probably taste funny anyway.
That’s a good idea, Bo. We should have shirts made up that say “Don’t eat us! We’re too funny to taste good!”
1.5kg Wombat meat
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg. baby carrots
6 potatoes, quartered
1 small pkg. lentils
1 can tomato juice
Place all ingredients in casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake at 180 degrees celsius for 12 hours.
Just saying !!! 😉
I’ll assume you mean by “wombat meat” meat that we wombats might have in the fridge. Otherwise, this could have grave diplomatic implications!
You don’t have to worry about people in Gatorhead usin’ that recipe. We don’t know a kilogram from a cardiogram!
And that’s a good thing, too!
Bwahahahahahahaha. It’s okay as long as it doesn’t apply to oneself. Bwahahahahahaha. I love it!
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Scientific advancement is fine, but when it hits too close to home, it hurts.
Wait I thought wombies were a species superintelligent nuclear powered wombats. I could never take a chomp out of Binkie, he’s much too cute. But no one that I know of in Australia eats wombats (which are numerous at least so I’m told) or koalas (which are protected.) And someone once told me that wombats are not very yummy and that’s why no one eats them.
That’s true, we Wombies are nuclear powered, so if you eat us, you’ll die of radiation poisoning. And you’re right about us not tasting good, too. So no wombat eating!
You Aussy wombys are awesome and should be cloned. Definitely a higher species. Might I suggest not aim for the diner’s plate but perhaps American political office.
Thanks, gmom! “Wombat for President” does have a certain ring to it, and in fact we already have the merchandise here and here.
They would have to be either born or cloned in the U.S. though.
Do you think they can clone Richard North’s, i have far to much work to do. lol
You have so many characters going, I thought you already had been cloned!
I’m against the cloning of Wombats also. Not sure that we really need more running around unless it is at Dummies of the Year! 🙂
One can never have too many Wombies, though I think they should be produced the natural way.
Hey, everybody needs spare parts! Ha,ha,ha!
I suppose that could come in handy if things go wrong with my rocket testing.
Cloning didn’t sound so good once Binky heard it would be a wombat. Don’t blame him.
It’s a little too close to home. Next thing you know, they’ll be trying to clone me!
Besides… wombat clones would just be more competition for eating the world’s chocolate supply!
That’s very true. More Wombies equal less chocolate and rising prices. It could trigger a worldwide chocolate shortage.
Just be sure that no wombies go swimming in chocolate and you should be on the safe side. I would hide you in my lower level, it is quite dark & cool if the hu-mans get too zombie like!
Thanks, Grammy Mouse! If things get too dangerous around here, we’ll take you up on that offer.
how can such greatness be replicated?! I don’t see this happening.
Neither do I!
There’s already a very limited pool of females who are attracted to wombats. Cloning wombats will only increase competition for those women.
There are human woman interested in wombats??!! Perhaps I’ve been looking for love in the wrong places.
Are wombats kosher?
Definitely not! Avoid them at all costs!
Hahaha, but wombats are cute. They should totally clone them 😉
But then there may be too much of a good thing.
More wombat for dinner! 🙂
Invited for dinner and not as dinner, I hope.
When I learned I had been cloned, I was beside myself 🙂
That’s just your clone speaking.
Looks like the makings of another clone war. Wombat Combat!
Oh no! I was hoping it wouldn’t come to that!
Every wombat is as unique as a snowflake. Just don’t let one land on your tongue!
Especially if you’re eating chocolate!
Binky, have you never tried to clone your self?
No, I’ve never tried to clone myself. Though a clone could certainly come in handy sometimes. Perhaps I should try it.
