In October I wrote, in relation to the auction of Michael Jackson's singed hair, that:
"Reports that the buyer intends to clone them are of course utter nonsense."
It seems that my ironical comment proved to be correct.
According to media reports, DNA samples taken from Jackson's hair have been used to create a new perfume. The company producing this monstrosity, My DNA Fragrance, claims it can engineer scents from genetic codes.
