Brainspace: Genetic Engineering
AIFF 11.1kHz 8-bit mono 3:1 compressed sound (120K, 32 seconds).
Context: Tim and Debbie are discussing the social implications of genetic engineering.
Debbie : But like, um, what is really crucial, I think, is that there will be a whole new range of ethnic communities. Right, no longer will it be Yugoslavs versus Croates, right, but like, um, Frigidaires versus Kelvinators. Um culminating in the ultimate racist taunt, "Guess who's mum was a Whirlpool?". Right. Tim : Heavy. Debbie : Excellent supportive.
Note: Fridgidaire and Kelvinator are popular brands of refrigerators in Australia. "Guess Who's Mum's Got A Whirlpool" is a well-known advertising slogan in Australia that was used to advertise Whirlpool washing machines. In the advertisements someone would point to someone else who is wearing particularly clean clothes and say "Guess Who's Mum's Got A Whirlpool?"
