I’m still trying to figure out whether I find this video funny or just dorky. Nonetheless, I always encourage fun in the lab, and so I’m posting this for your viewing pleasure. The video makes several interesting political statements such as subtly questioning the importance of publishing in high impact factor publications or the ethical dilemma involved in animal-based experimentation. Below are some of my favorite lines/scenes from the video. What are yours?

  • “he’s not a labster-he’s just European”
  • “many labster spends at least 2hrs a day searching for journals with impact factors of less than 0.5″
  • labsters use “tofu mice” to avoid working with real animals
