    I really wanted to say it didn't make me even smile, because it's really sophomore & asinine and still getting spread around like an STD, and every place people ask "Is this real?". That's not to say that DNA testing is beyond criticism and reproach, but this site just preys on standard prejudices and misconceptions you can find on any discussion forum. You can't have a rational discussion about real concerns when people are more worried about having their anonymised & de-identified "golden DNA" sold to China to grow unauthorized clones (while *simultaneously* insisting it's all a scam and no genetics involved) than credit card fraud, plain identity theft, or just using freaking FaceBook.

    But yeah, I did get a chuckle out of a few things, probably different from others, like "Devastating security breaches at DNA Friend are infrequent, meaning you can rest easy in the knowledge that only approved company personnel and our network of international subcontractors can access your genetic profile." which brings a FEW companies to mind. Or "13 consecutive months without a Better Business Bureau investigation" which is just a great meme format, oh and Our Research Partners is golden and very realistic

    Exactly.
    Many people will start out thinking - Is this real?
    No, but thank goodness this is nothing like MY test lab.
    And then - wait a minute, let's just have a look at my Terms of Service again. They keep changing them, so I am not sure what they say.
    Ooooooh, that is spookily similar.
    But My lab is OK, isn't it? On the right side of all this?
    Not like those other labs.
    Isn't it?

    The sophomore and asinine bits really help to tell you that it is not real.

    Like that French April Fool's Day site where you could get a free DNA test online.
    You had to put your hands and nose against the screen so they could sample your DNA.
    Ha!
