Trials and Fibulations

Post by pondspider » Wed Oct 01, 2014 1:10 pm

It was time for Gor’s health check and he waited nervously to be called into the Doctor’s room.

These places gave him the creeps. The walls so flat and clean and bright. It wasn’t natural.

After the examination the Doctor looked concerned, “I’m sorry, but your body-mass index indicates that you’re obese”.

“No Doc, I’m just heavily-boned. My mother always said so”.

“A common excuse, but my analysis is unquestionable”.

“OK Doc, I’ll try to cut back on the woolly rhino and elk fritters”.

With a resigned sigh, Gor headed home. Life can be tough for a Neanderthal.

Imagine if they had survived, and the Geico commercials weren't a spoof. Special Ed classes overflowing, Political parties vying for their votes. A whole new class of victims of discrimination.

Now imagine a century from now, when people are created from pre-screened genetic material, and our kids are the ones in the special ed classes.

Suddenly I'm hoping for things to stay the way they are.

I got me a craving for some elk fritters now, something terrible.
