I was unaware the DrugMonkey and PhysioProf were on the payroll of The Onion.
I’m not a behaviorial pharmacologist but I know quite a few and it didn’t keep me from howling out loud at yet another gem from one of my favorite satirical pubs.
Thanks for the chortles.
That brought to mind one of the first pieces of pharmacology humor I ever saw — I think it was in 1962 at the FASEB meetings in Atlantic City. A group of grad students and post-docs from the pharmacology department of one of the London medical schools showed a movie they’d put together, ostensibly for recruiting new grad students in pharmacology — done in the style of the “Carry On…” movies which were very popular at that time. It was hilarious. I wonder if any copies still exist.
I adore the Onion and wanted to personally thank the writer of this gem: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/30988
If it was DrugMonkey or PhysioProf… my deepest gratitude!

Thanks for the link, motherfucker!
But wait a minute, where were the wackaloon mice?
