Aussie Billionaire to Clone Dinosaurs?

This is sure to end well

Apparently Clive Palmer has never actually watched any of the Jurassic Park movies. Palmer, an eccentric Australian billionaire, is rumored to be in discussions with the researchers who cloned Dolly the sheep to see if the same can be done with, yes, dinosaurs. The dinosaurs would, reportedly, be featured in a dinosaur-park area to be added to Palmer’s existent, modestly-named Palmer Resort in Coolum, Australia. Other rumored additions to the resort, which already has nine pools and a high-end golf course: a casino, a London-Eye-style ferris wheel, and a sky rail. Palmer is expected to hold a press conference on Friday in Brisbane.
