Wow...I'm going to curtail my typical wiseass remarks about the Beatles because this is so incredibly...weird.
You may remember some dentist named Michael Zuk who spent $30,000 to buy John Lennon's tooth that was auctioned off by Lennon's former housekeeper. At first I just assumed he was REALLY into teeth but now it's been revealed that Zuk has enlisted a team of scientists to extract Lennon's DNA from the tooth in the hopes that they will be able to CLONE him.
Zuk is optomistic about the tests saying,"If scientists think they can clone mammoths, then John Lennon could be next. To potentially say I had a small part in bringing back one of rock's greatest stars would be mind-blowing. I'm nervous and excited at the possibility that we'll be able to fully sequence [his] DNA, very soon I hope."
This guy sounds like an...umm...intersting fellow. But I suppose I'd speak (and think) the same way if I had access to laughing gas.

In the meantime, here's the only Beatles song that doesn't completely suck, IMO
OK, sorry...to cleanse the pallet, hopefully they'll put science to a better use and clone Davy Jones. Here he is with the Monkees
