1. Don't steal someone else's identity. No matter how much they look like you.

There is a chance that person's life could be filled with conspiracy theories, clones, religious zealots and maybe some extra cash.

2. Don't ever sneak up on a soccer mom right after she cut up some oranges.

Just because she is a soccer mom and looks like you doesn't necessarily mean she'll be accommodating.

7. Make sure your hair is always on point.

If your hair is considerably fluffy then you may attract science geeks. Killer grades and a French accent also help.

8. Never wear a scarf while using the garbage disposal.

Before you shove that felt angel (that you got as a gift from your former BFF) down the garbage disposal make sure you remove any excess clothing.

9. Do steal a couple bottles of wine for you and your crush.

Jogging away, so as not to get caught, is just as effective as running away.

13. It's OK to talk to yourself.

Being your own best friend isn't really a bad thing - you won't have to worry about anyone stopping you from drinking your third glass of wine.

14. Dress your best if you're ever involved with an evil Scientist.

Sparkly dresses, fabulous heels, flawless hair and fierce red lipstick help ease the pain of doing someone else's dirty work.

15. Don't ever break the first rule of Clone Club.

Unless you need another person to burgle for you, be your back-up, babysitter, personal make-up artist or shoulder to cry on - then it is completely fine to break the rules.
