Clone Wars: Sudo Do My Dishes

There is a lot of concern these days about cloning. Ethical and ecclesiastical issues aside, I’m TOTALLY on board with clones.  For one thing, if I have a clone, I can have him do all the boring stuff in my life; like dishes and making my side of the bed.

I’m currently in a University of Utah Dermatology Research study investigating the pill form of an injectable medication.  As part of said study I was asked to give permission to have my Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)  stored into a database.  They assured me that it would be anonymous.

I questioned my doctor “are people usually finicky about this?”

“Yes, people are very concerned about their DNA identifying them.”

My thought was that as soon as they grew a clone of you, it wouldn’t matter if it was anonymous, they could just fingerprint the clone or use facial recognition software or something to figure it out.  But my response was “Well, hey!  As long as you guys teach him how to do my job, AND I get access to the clone twice a year for vacation, I’m TOTALLY fine with you cloning me.”

She laughed (because I’m completely awesome), and said that she would ensure they hold up to their end of the bargain if they fully clone me (without say, sheep parts or something).

So, my question.  What would YOU do with your clone?  (Business- & family-friendly responses, please.  Don’t make me send out our home visitation team–we DO know where you live.)
