Talk about generating instant karma by making a mockup starting with a musician's molar. That's the objective of a Canadian dentist who wants to clone John Lennon from a tooth he purchased at an auction.

Boing Boing reported on Thursday that Michael Zuk spent $34,000 on the organic novelty. From it, he wants to clone the late Beatles member with aspirations of raising him as a son.
"He would still be his exact duplicate but you know, hopefully keep him away from drugs and cigarettes, that kind of thing," said Zuk, who bought the tooth in 2011.
Additional project surrounding the item include a DNA pendant, art photos, a documentary, charity fundraising initiatives and even a tooth tour.
