Dr. Constance Noring shot and killed her microbiology colleague and formerly good friend, Dr. Dan Deline when, for the umpteenth time he used the word homology when he really should have said similarity.
“He was completely grinding my gears”, said Dr. Noring.
“Know what he said? Want to know what he said? He said that he was comparing two paralogous DNA sequences and they were seventy fricking five percent homologous, according to clustal”.
“I just saw red. I completely lost my mind. I told him, I don’t know how many times, that homology is a concept and similarity is a measure that can be expressed as a percentage. Did he listen? Did he f*ck!!”
“The guy is supposed to be a biologist, yet this is the kind of crap he comes out with?”
“I’m only sorry I didn’t shoot him earlier.”
