This whole three parent embryo thing is bothering me. As a former reporter I’m trained to always look at who benefits by the committing of any ridiculous or heinous act. So I put my little brain to work and came up with the culprit behind this latest apostasy.

I believe Hallmark is behind this menace in an attempt to widen their sales reach.

Look, there’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and now there’s “Other’s Day” for that third parent who has everything. Oh yeah, the day will be announced to honor “The other” and soon it will become a federal holiday after the card makers pour enough money into Washington. And then we’ll all be forced to buy a card for that special “other” who parented us.

Believe it or not, this would actually make me feel better to think there was some logical albeit ridiculous reason for this kind of science. At least then it’s not just scientists without conscience monkeying around with elements and principalities for no reason other than they just wanted to see what would happen.
