My blog name is weird. My name is not Wesley, and I do not, as a rule, discuss tea. (Though I do love tea. I’m going to make a cup of Sleepytime Vanilla after I finish this.) I couldn’t think of anything clever when I started the first iteration of this blog back in 2012, so I went with a Clone High reference that I’ve used other places on the interwebs.
If you’ve never seen Clone High, it was a short-lived Canadian animated series that ran for a mere 13 episodes in the early 2000’s. The premise is that it’s a high school full of genetically engineered clones of famous historical figures, including Abe Lincoln, Joan of Arc, Gandhi, Cleopatra, and JFK, among many others. (I’m looking at you, genetically mutated clone of Marie Curie!)
A nefarious government agency is behind Clone High, but it’s run by the ridiculous Principal Cinnamon J. Scudworth, who has a scheme of his own to use the clones to create an amusement park called Cloney Island. Scudworth’s assistant/right hand man is a robot butler named Mr. Butlertron, who wears a magical red sweater vest and is prone to asking, “more tea, Wesley?”
So that’s where my blog name comes from! Mystery solved. You should watch Clone High, if you haven’t – it’s hilarious and very edgy for the time, and holds up extremely well. Until you get around to that, I’ll leave you with this extremely relevant clip:
