I'll give you a giggle

A mad scientist made a clone of himself, but something went terribly wrong in the process. All the clone would do is stand in the upstairs window and shout vulgarities at people passing by. Nothing the scientist did had any effect on the clone’s persistent rude behaviour.

It caused the scientist great embarrassment because the clone looked just like him, and people mistakenly thought it was the scientist giving them the rude gestures. One day, frustrated beyond measure, the scientist pushed the clone out the window.

Seconds later the police arrived and arrested the scientist.

Charged him with making an obscene clone fall. . . .

(Is that a collective groan I hear resonating through cyberspace?)
