Let the plight of the characters this week be a warning to those who would meddle in the realms of cloning and genetic manipulation. Remember: if you feel tempted to create a freak of nature with which to terrorize the world, just take a look around. Aren’t there enough freaks already?
And let’s not forget the poor creatures who may end up in a pet shop window with the unfortunate breed designation of “Shih-Tzu Poo”. Admittedly better than the alternative, “Shih-Tzoodle”, this is a fate that no creature deserves.
Except maybe that one neighbor you don’t like.
