I think we need a little humor every once in a while to keep our taxonomic minds alert.

I gave a test to the Pre-Technology students today.  Pre-Technology students are ones who are upgrading courses or taking courses not completed in high school.  Here is the question and answer given by one student.  Where students ever come up with these answers is beyond me.

No snickering or laughing allowed in view of the screen.

Q:  Explain the difference between "control" and "experimental" animals in an experiment.
A:  "Control" animals are alive and being worked on, while "experimental" animals are dead before the experiment.
