SoCS — Genetics

“Ladies and gentlemen,” Harold, the CEO, said, “tonight I’m going to let the genie out of the bottle. We are launching a new business plan that is going to generate billions of dollars in new revenue for the company, and for you geniuses in this room, who were instrumental in helping to develop this plan, we will be very generous when it comes to rewarding you for your efforts.

There was a round of enthusiastic applause from the several dozen highly specialized team members in the room.

“Yes,” Harold continued, “we pushed and prodded over the past year, and at times not so gently.” There was some nervous laughter from those in the audience. “But generally speaking, each and every one of you contributed to this day. I don’t mean to generalize, but you, a multigenerational, mixed gender, mixed race group, have done something some would call miraculous. But there was never a doubt that you could pull it off, given the superior genepool in the room. And with our new gene-splicing technologies being launched, we’re going to be creating a whole new generation of superheroes. Let the genetical revolution begin!”

      It came up when I googled “gene splitting.”

    Sounds like an absolutely terrible plan… a good story though!
