Best Quote: “Why are Surgeons the only ones allowed to perform Surgeries? (…) And the only other people who can check to make sure that they’re not manipulating…”

“Are other scientists!”

“They’re very smart, these scientists.”

“That’s what I’m saying!”

The Daily Show hits the nail on the head on science, once again. Any DS clips on genetic engineering? Yup!

Karl earned his Ph.D. in Plant Breeding and Plant Genetics at UW-Madison, with a minor in Life Science Communication. His dissertation was on both the genetics of sweet corn and plant genetics outreach. He currently works as a public research geneticist in Madison, WI. His favorite produce might just be squash.

    If I hadn’t spoken with people like her in the past i would say that she is just acting, but something tells me she isn’t and it makes me very sad for humanity.

    It takes a strong sense of irony to claim that “The Daily Show hits the nail on the head on science” in these videos. In fact, it takes pure Fe.

    PS: Thanks for posting this, Karl.

      She’s a walking Poe’s Law if I ever saw one. Walked right into it with a classic old Daily Show shtick of agreeing with crazies to the point of absurdity.

      I posted this not only because of the general science interest, but we hear the exact same thing about genetic engineering, vaccines, etc.
