I happened to be exploring the wonderful world of one-man barbershop quartet singing the other day. Don’t ask me why; I have no idea.*
But that led me (and it was a surprisingly short leap) to science-related a capella singing. I knew the latter existed. I didn’t know there was so much of it these days. One of my faves was this “Mr. Sandman” parody about gene editing, “CRISPR-Cas9.” It’s actually quite educational. With subtitles to help with unconfusication.
Then I turned around and discovered that The Onion has done a funny on the very same subject.
So I guess the universe was telling me to blog about this.
Oh, and if you’re interested in one-man barbershop quartets, check out the work of Julien Neel, aka Trudbol.
*That’s a lie. I’m just too embarrassed to admit that I ran across one-man barbershop quartets while listening to H.P. Lovecraft-based Christmas carols. Damn, I wish YouTube weren’t owned by Evil Google. It’s a wonderful place.
