In finding appropriately named “cannabinoid receptor 1” alcohol gene researchers have generated a flurry of excitement. Football dads are demanding a fast track to gene therapy, especially for their children cursed with geek genes.
In comparison, last year they found the “tea totaller” gene and- no one cared.
Researchers are currently hard at work discovering the researcher gene, the gene that makes them try to assign everything a gene. “We’ll get there,” says high muckety-muck Ivy League guy. “Unless, of course, we figure out how to splice ourselves party genes instead.”
