"The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from Science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers."

Plastic flowers incidentally figure on my list of top-ten hated ("strongly-disliked," if you will) things...right after stomach viruses, government paperwork, and fatty meats.

But that wasn't the point of the quote, I am well aware...
