Biology vs Comedy

People in biology related fields think they are funny. I haven't decided if I'm laughing at them or with them.

I'll give 2 examples:
1) Dr. Southern developed the "Southern" blot, used to detect DNA after gel electrophoresis. Another guy then did the same thing with RNA and called it a "Northern" blot. Another one did it with proteins and called it a "Western" blot.

2) The group describing "Western" blotting to the class today decided it would be fun to dress up as cowboys and do a mini dance prior to their demonstration. I'll remind you that this is a graduate level course.

Dude, shut up, Westerns rock! You're just jealous because you don't have cool cardinal direction methods!
