New York, NY (PRWEB) August 30, 2006 –
In this week’s free issue, NewsLaugh.com, The Sanely Funny Weekly Humor Magazine, presents “If Embryos Could Talk.” It’s our pointed Spoof of the Week. Read how it begins and then click onto NewsLaugh.com to read it all:
An embryo was relaxing when a female clinician approached the little glass dish in which it was defrosting after a long time in the freezer.
The embryo noticed her approach and exclaimed, “Whoopee, do I get implanted now? I can’t wait to grow up and become a real person!”
“No such luck,” the researcher told the embryo.
“What do you mean? I’ve been in cold storage for months, and now you’re telling me I don’t get to move up to becoming a baby?”
“I’m sorry,” the lady researcher said, “but we already implanted your sister.”
“Yes, we had to select one of the embryos we created so the infertile couple could have a child, and she turned out to be the lucky one. I’m sorry. The woman doesn’t have room for anymore.”
“Oh,” replied the embryo, suddenly disconsolate. “Can’t you find another woman who would be happy to have me implanted?”
“I would if I could, but our customers generally prefer to be implanted with their own embryos.”
“So what’s going to happen to me?”
The researcher paused. She didn’t want to break the news to the wannabe. But she knew she had to. “You’re going to be destroyed.”
“Destroyed?” the embryo asked, startled.
“Yes. I’m sorry,” she said, picking up the little dish in which the pre-tot quivered with anxiety. “Now, you’re just biohazard.”
“-Hazard. So into the trash you go.”
“Hold on there,” the embryo protested. “You mean I’ve been declared dispensable?”
“I’m afraid so.”
“Well,” the researcher lamented, “not necessarily totally useless.”
The embryo perked up. “Tell me about that.”
And so the story of the embryo fighting for a useful place in the great unfolding of human life continues, before it is finally, like all of us after we complete our lives, tossed onto the trash heap of time.
