Wacky Wednesday: Weekly World News (Wow!)Wednesday, January 11th, 2012
We haven’t crunched the numbers, but Headway thinks this might be a McGill first: Our research has been taffy-pulled into goofball fantasy in the venerable (virtual) pages of the Weekly World News. Earlier this week, we posted about PhD student Rajee Rajakumar, professor Ehab Abouheif and their team’s new insights into the evolutionary genetics of “supersoldier” ants, and now their good work has become fodder for satire. (Let’s be clear: the real supersoldier ant research is NOT behind any mayhem.) As longtime “BatBoy” fans, we’re chuffed.
