Just wondering if you all would eat it or not. I'm not sure about it myself...

Please discuss.

Sure I would, if only for the novelty.

Cool, Jo. I might eat it. Hope it tastes good. :)

I would eat it, but I'm really waiting for cultured meat. Imagine an enormous Petri dish somewhere in space (to keep it free of contamination) growing pure muscle. No slaughter, no fat, just meat.

It is coming.

I'd try it, just to see what it's about...

Seriously, cloned meat is no different than any other meat. The only difference between a cloned animal and a regular animal is that the cloned animal shares the same genes as the animal from which it was cloned. The meat would have the same properties as regular meat. It's not like it's irradiated or anything, there's no chemical differences, there's no difference at all. So yes, I'd eat it.

Oh, and you could conceivably eat the same cow twice. Just sayin'.

Only if it was a clone of Adolph Hitler. I love dictator. ;)

Sure. There's a lot of hysteria about it right now for no real reason, but I can't imagine that it would be any different.

If it means lower prices on American Kobe beef, get Xerox into the act!

They say you are what you eat for a reason. I say there is a difference between eating meat and eating something cloned. I read not too long ago that they were having trouble keeping the cloned animals alive. I'm sure this was worked out as they've approved eating atleast the offspring of clones, but cloning our food seems on the same level as reproducing with our siblings. There's another thread going on just that. People are horrified at the thought without good reason. The reason 90% are horrified is because this no-no has been pounded into their society-conscious minds. The reason for this?- because inbreeding causes genetic abnormalities/diseases to multiply within families. If that happens within siblings, then how are they expecting that to improve by using the same cloned animals for breeding over and over. Just as with drugs, they'll be apologizing 20 years from now for not having done enough research.

This does make one wonder at the bible describing Adam's beginning, and Eve's being formed from a rib....

Everything is cloned. Don't you people know that by now? This is a cloned universe. I thought we were all aware of this fact? Hmmm? The cloners are cloning. How novel. We're all clones. Just ask Alice.

I love you.
I love you, too.
You are me.
Me? You? Than who are you?
Me, of course.
Hmmm, then it makes perfect sense.
I love you.

The idea that they could make another Turkey out there just like me should really scare you.

We're already eating clone vegetables, so why not.

I'm sure I've eaten worse uncloned meat in China.

That would be two words, doofus.

I'd clone myself and have my clone try it.

And then I would eat my own clone.

I'm all for it if they cloned the best steak I've ever had. However, they would likely clone the botulism burgers you get at the roadside burger vans.

Why is my gorgeous sense of humor always lost on you? I know why. You're a goddamned turkey. Your brain is about the size of a...a...a...well, a cranberry. That's why.

Yes I would. There would be no reason not to eat it. Besides I cook it well done so it would not matter.

Meat is meat.

Cloning is just another method of reproduction. I can't understand the hysteria about it.

Can't be any worse than Spam.

I doubt I could afford to even eat a piece of a cloned cow. I mean it costs over 20K just to initiate the process.

I imagine that by the time the animal is an adult it would be worth $100K.

Us normal everyday people don't eat $100K animals.

So I imagine that we will continue to eat regular cows.

And those silly laughing cows in that California Cheese commercial are going to be first up against the wall at lunch time, buckos!

Oh, great! As if the rich don't get enough benies. Now they get designer meat exclusive to them.

I hate the california cows.

I bet you wouldn't hate them grilled, with Idaho potatoes on the side.

I like Wisconsin potatoes. With a glass of Wisconsin milk. With some Wisconsin cheddar. On my California cow. And a side of Wisconsin cranberries.

Everyone in the above thread is definitely awesome, 'specially Turk!
