Psychiclone

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sy kik klone

Sentence: Roger had gotten his grant to further study the likelihood of mass-cloning an individual. It had taken lots of persuasion and hard work on his part to convince the powers that be that this could be a worthwhile pursuit. He had sold them with ideas like, "Imagine being able to psychiclone the Queen or The President or any other famous leader so that governments remained stable and economies did not suffer through misfortunate events". They had bought it and now only he knew how to achieve this miracle. He got busy and psychicloned one hundred new clones. The only trouble was that the one he psychicloned was himself and then he immediately disappeared, so that the authorities never knew which one to arrest...Bring on the clones!

Etymology: Psychic (pertaining to forces or mental processes outside the possibilities defined by natural or scientific laws;affecting or influenced by the human mind) & Psyche (that which is responsible for one's thoughts and feelings; the seat of the faculty of reason) & Clone (an unauthorized copy or imitation;make multiple identical copies of) & Sounds like Cyclone (a violent rotating windstorm)
