"Dolly team creates designer chicks" Another headline gone bad. Did the designers of Barbie start working on their own line of fashion clothes for young women?

nice work on their part by putting a picture of Britney Spears with the article. Real relavant.

I have enough faith in the brains at the BBC to think that they were slyly commenting on the clone-like aspects of teem pop stars while reporting on the Dolly team's work. The suggestive photo of the eggs followed by the pic of Britney seems to confirm it.

Plus - who wouldn't believe that "Britney was developed over two years by US biotech company Viragen and the Roslin Institute." Christine was hatched by another company, and the Backstreet Boys were a mad scientists' experiment gone wrong...
