(Gothic) Scientists at the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab here have successfully cloned a pail of water. Working around the clock since last June, these cutting edge researchers confirm that water was created, albeit in small proportions, after combining genetic cells of several indigenous species with captured moisture and a residue of hydrogen and oxygen molecules.

Other than that they aren’t talking. 

Overshadowed for years by projects aimed at cloning everything from chickens to people, the water creation came about with little federal funding, the operations budget evolving from alternative sources and dry humor. 

Many of the day to day expenses were covered by local environmental groups with the remainder of the research money coming from state and local water boards, militant ditch riders and ranching interests.

“Most water boards, especially on the Confront Range, made their contributions anonymously or under the umbrella of hastily contrived public corporations,” said Oral Waters, executive director of RMBL. “They didn’t want anyone to connect them to this innovative approach in case it failed and the whole place went up like a wild flower.

The cloned water is on display at the aforementioned museum through February 30, when it will be shipped to Denver for analysis. Already conservationists have filed a lawsuit to prevent the water from being adjudicated for suburbs and golf corpses in the Denver metro area. They say that once the phenomenon reaches the heavily populated areas to the east the Western Slope will never get it back.

Meanwhile scientists here contend they can clone even larger amounts of water just as soon as they gain

approval from regulatory boards and someone’s federal government.

“They want to make sure that the excess water does not adversely affect the price of existing water,” continued Waters. “It’s like oil, milk or many other liquid forms. An abundance of water could cause prices to drop and result in a negative impact on the market.”

Many local watchdogs warn that the price of water has always been in the bargain basement and that any new water in this valley would be welcome news. 

Acknowledged as the breakthrough of the century, the creation of abundant water supplies will change everything, they say. Meanwhile related offices have been flooded with phone calls since the weekend.

“What the rest of the Rocky Mountain concerns do with this new found treasure is still not clear,” said one environmentalist. “Soon we may see more green fields, experiments with high yield crops, more trees, less desert and, yes, more golf corpses. We have skirted the issue for far too long thinking that new sources of the life liquid would be found. Now we appear to be on the threshold of ice-cold discovery.”

Physicians, set on pathological career advancement and fame associated with medical breakthroughs, have focused on cloning living things for decades. Despite condemnation from the government and religious groups they have blindly followed task, the medical hierarchy smiling in approval.

“For no other reason than the earth’s overpopulation this research must be terminated,” said Waters. “We don’t need any more people. But we do need a lot more water!”

Moments after the announcement a host of corporate interests were on the scene attempting to file patents, carve out deals and make claims of the new water. They seek to control the cloned substance and thus sell it to consumers at exorbitant prices.

“It’s the American way,” said one real estate executive who seeks to gain rights for a 10,000-home suburb east of Denver. “We have no water now but we have to keep feeding the monster that we have created or he’ll turn on us. Look at the pharmaceutical companies. They get away with whatever they like. If the people ever rise up and take back what is theirs we’ll all be on the chopping block.”

Waters would not comment when asked if his research would lead to the cloning of snow. He did say, however that the RMBL needed storage containers, cisterns, troughs and a backhoe so as to continue to clone the wet gold.

“What good is anything without water,” he pontificated. “So what if we drill for a million barrels of oil? It can’t keep people from their thirst. What good is a pickup load of gold if the driver is parched? We envision two men. One has a bag of gold, the other a cup of water. When push comes to shove which one would best benefit from an even trade?”

Scientists went on to assure supporters that his water was of the finest quality and tasted just like all the other water in the region.

“It’s fresh, clear and bountiful…and best when served cold,” he quipped. “The first thing on our extended agenda is to return the rivers of this country to their original state, then I myself plan to take a long, hot shower.”
