Aww c'mon now guys. Quit givin' him a hard time. I understand, you feel like you gotta throw in the requisite "Why the eff?" but let him be now. He's got the drift.
I wonder - and this is JUST a thought, not a recommendation - what if you added 1 oz or 2 oz of acid malt to the grain bill? Maybe? That could be completely off base, let someone else correct me before you go doing it.
Otherwise I think +1 to using clear bottles, and just intentionally skunking them.
Or... better yet. Don't do it. Just brew a clone, and don't let it skunk, and see what your friends say. After all, you're in the position to be the "beer expert"... maybe they'll trust your guidance.
