Shes really upset with me again,
I didnt give her what she likes.
I dont know what to tell her,
Dont know what to say.
Everything got funky last night.

She was really bombed,
And I was really blown away,
Until I asked her what she wanted,
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

She gets a charge out of bein so weird,
Digs gettin downright strange.
But I can keep a handle on anything,
Just this side of deranged.

She was gettin bombed,
And I was gettin blown away,
And she held it in her hand
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

Shes so cold, as pure as the driven slush.
And thats not jewelry shes talkinabout, [see notes]
It really dont cost that much.

She was gettin bombed,
And I was gettin blown away,
And she took it in her hand,
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

The city-state has chosen at-risk neighbourhoods for a pilot project that includes attaching signs to windows that read, "Beware: DNA protection. Thieves will be convicted in no time."

What, do they get blasted with some sort of DNA cannon?

Welcome to Fark, where we'd much rather discuss the headline, instead of the actual article...Unless it's a political thread.

I thought it was smitty's mom's tongue stud, but given the amount of DNA on it, they could not narrow it down to a single species, let alone a single person.

It's synthetic DNA (read clear nail polish). Lame. Lame. Lame. Lame.

I dont believe most fifth graders would get this headline unless pearl necklaces are a daily part of their lives. I meant the jewelry. Penis.

... having actually *read* the FA, I came here to say that this intriguing technology does nothing to prevent theft of jewelry. It does increase your chances of having it returned, provided the thief doesn't think to *wash* the damned thing...

was thinking the same thing. it's a coating they put on the jewelry so I would think you can clean it with one of those UltraSonic cleaning devices. DNA gone.

Better to use Micro Laser Etching Serial numbers.

Your taste in humor must be impeccable. We're honored by your input and hope that you will continue to correct us when we laugh at the wrong things. Sometimes we just don't know any better.

"When I first joined the force I assumed that everything had semen on it, and there was some huge semen database that had all the bad guys DNA... There's no such thing! It doesn't exist!"

Please, no more greenlits with "DNA" and "pearl necklace" in them.

Mad props to Hollwood Cole for the vintage cliche.

Obvioulsy they put an arsehole in charge of the new idea department over there. At least there's cool song in my head as a result.

Farkers have standards? When did that happen?

Go check out the Politics tag if you want to see the "standards" on this site.
