Jay Squared- A story by the JMan himself! (A Must Read)
By Jay Fuentes
I thought I was used to the strange by now. After having a watch that took me back in time, a pool that sent me to another universe… but I was certainly not prepared to be chased by MYSELF!
It started two days ago when after seeing the Star Wars episode Attack of the Clones, I decided to make my own Clone. How hard would that be for a smart guy like me? It took me only 2 hours to build a machine to do the cloning and 3 hours to get enough bones so that my dog would sit still and be my first test subject! I think he looks better with 5 legs now.
I had cloned all your basic things: insects, fish, and even a cat (my 5 legged dog liked chasing after those two!). I decided it was time to move onto a bigger challenge… HUMANS. Since my sister was at dance class, and my dad was away I tried to clone my mom but she shot me a glare that made me never want to make TWO of her! Since there was no one else around, I decided to clone myself.
I had taken a piece of my own hair and put inside the DNA chamber of my machine and flicked the on switch. Nothing happened. That was when I realized that I unplugged it when I needed to plug in the toaster instead. Hey even mad scientist need to eat!
With the machine now on, the lights started flashing and the machine started to emit a screeching sound. They were not the normal sounds, no these were “It’s about to BLOW” and take the whole block with it ones. I hid behind a cabinet but made sure to bring my toast with me… imminent destruction makes me hungry.
Suddenly my sister twirled into in my lab trying to show me her new dance steps. In what I assume was supposed to be a Rockette Kick her show flew off her foot and knocked the power cord to my machine out of the socket. Which was a good thing I guess for the neighborhood, but not for my sister who was upset about how her shoe was now melted from the extreme heat of the machine. She started to walk away when all the sudden the door to my cloning machine opened.
Emerging from the machine was a hideous one eyed beast… just kidding it was a devilishly handsome fellow… otherwise known as my CLONE! “Look it’s Jay Squared” said my sister and then ran off to tattle to my mom.
So there we were… just Me and Myself. Good thing “I” wasn’t there! (Get it… me, myself and I? Okay sorry back to the story.) He stared at me, I stared back and then the silence was broken when my clone said, “Man you are one handsome dude!” Wow not only did he get my looks, he got my charming personality too! But was the world really ready for two of us? Apparently my clone did not think so. The malfunction from the machine turned him from Mad scientist into EVIL Scientist . Who I quickly found out could also shoot lasers from his eyes. I started to run thinking that if I survived I needed to destroy that machine before anymore handsome laser shooting MEs showed up.
So by now you must assume that I survived, cause I wrote this and all. But you are wrong… I AM THE EVIL CLONE! Just kidding! Really my mom showed up and his laser beam eyes were nothing compared to her GLARE. It was pretty creepy seeing my own face blow up, but kind of cool too! Mom made me clean up the clone brain goo and then destroy the machine. Only problem… we are now stuck with a 5 legged dog!
