On Friday 11th July we attended Dr. Shafiq on Beverly Glen Blvd, Beverly Hills clinic to discuss the possibility of IVF. In order to educate myself about the nature and history of illnesses children inherit from their parents I asked about ‘recessive genes’. Dr. Shafiq informed us: “A recessive inheritance pattern means that in order to have the disease, you would have to inherit two copies (alleles) of the abnormal gene, one from each parent.

Some of the relatively more common genetic conditions, such as cystic fibrosis, thalassaemia and sickle-cell disease, are passed on in this way.

Geneticists call these genes recessive because they usually have no effect unless paired with a similarly mutated gene from the other parent."
I asked "We both have brown hair, is it possible that our child could be a red head/ginger?" He replied "Humans are descended from Chimpanzees, due to our biological blueprint our genes are only compatible with like species, that is why we do not see two different species cross breeding, therefore your child would only inherit red/ginger hair if both of you were descended from Orang-utans.�

I found this form of humour to be offensive and inappropriate. Is this a form of malpractice?

So did you ever sue the ACLU over their lawnmower?


Shit, wait a minute, it was UCLA. My bad!

I'm surprised you weren't wearing your Fendi Jeans in that photo or had they gone out of fashion when that photo was taken

Probably. But now that he has given all of his money to charity, she wants him to sue everybody so that he can fund her lavish lifestyle once more.......

Maybe it was after the lawnmower incident and they weren't fit to wear in public
