Cloning Pioneer, Donald P. Ditto, Dies at 88

Scientist Survived by Wife and 3286 Children


(SNN) - University of Middlesex genetics professor, Donald P. Ditto died on Wednesday leaving behind over three thousand children he fathered. Ditto, a devoted husband, ended up with all the progeny from experimenting in the early days of cloning.

“It was hard to find willing cell donors back then, “explained family friend, Heywood U. Vocoff “What else was he supposed to do; stop his research?”

The professor’s offspring, many of which had the full compliment of one head, two ears, two eyes, a nose, a mouth, etc, all lived with their respective mothers and had little contact with “Dad” except, of course, on Fathers Day.

“I remember watching the mailman struggle with all the cards every Fathers Day; lots at Christmas, too,” chuckled Vocoff. “Don would get sacks of them. He told me once he wrote a thank you card for each and every one. It would take him weeks. He eventually cloned his secretary to help out with the correspondence.”
