Oh oh oh .... caught in a bad project

Last week saw the submission of another grant (ARC Discovery Grant). Continuing on with the need for humour while surviving grant writing, this post highlights one of my favourite videos on YouTube. Bad Project is a parody of Lady Gaga's Bad Romance. I think many scientists can relate to the situation in this video. In fact, I like to say one my most important career skills was the ability to avoid "Research Projects from Hell".

Anyway this parody song not only has surprisingly good production values but has great lyrics, I always find myself singing-
Blot, Blot Western Baby, Figure One will be Amazing.
Blot, Blot Western Baby, Transfer- this exposure's hazy
Blot, Blot Western Baby, Got no bands this shit is crazy

I also love the box of eppendorf tubes labelled in Thai, reminds of a scientist I used to work with who labelled everything he worked on in Hebrew.
