Dentist Attempting to Clone John Lennon

Well this is definitely going to work.

A Canadian dentist has declared that he is going to try and clone the former Beatle, using a tooth that he bought at auction for $31,000.

Michael Zuk is working with 'American scientists' in an unspecified laboratory.

Zuk stated, "I am nervous and excited at the possibility that we will be able to fully sequence John Lennon's DNA, very soon I hope. With researchers working on ways to clone mammoths, the same technology certainly could make human cloning a reality."

He adds, "I think it's pretty clear now that John Lennon has a magical power down to the dust of his rotten molar. He gave it to a fan, and I'm thrilled to be able to chosen to share his influence for charity, entertainment and science."

If we have a whip round for one of George's incisors, they can get him done at the same time and the Fab Four will be back together in no time.
