One of my gigs involves a bit of biology editing. I last thought about biology in tenth grade. My teacher didn’t know a thing that wasn’t in the book. And anyway tenth grade was a good, er, twenty years ago (plus or minus a few mumbles).
And so, in my ignorance, I find some of the following quotes excessively funny:
“XXXXXX was compared with (a) human and (b) mouse values”
AU: Expand E. coli on first use?
“XX was used to cover a shaking baffled Erlenmeyer flask”
Don’t worry, Erlenmeyer flask, I was baffled too.
What do you find unintentionally funny?
