plastic food takes on new meaning

The FDA of the USA has approved cloned beef and milk for human consumption and it's only a matter of time before Australia heads the same way. (We have after all agreed to clone embryos for the sake of scientific research. Eating cloned beef is far less odious)

What might be an appropriate response to this situation, this fiddling with nature?

Perhaps Frank and I should start exploring the options of housing dairy cows in our back yard. There's enough space for... um... one. We could rear chickens, and sheep do help keep the grass short. We could have our own funny farm right in the middle of town!

Thank goodness we grow our own vegetables! At least they come without interference.

Oh yeah... that genetic engineering of seeds? I'm sure our seeds were clean, good, dinky di originals. No modifications there OK.

What chance is there of living a natural life?

None really.

Hmmm, something I try not to think too much about. Don't want to know what effect all our "improvements" are having on us.
