Maybe I need to explain the glowing monkeys according to the Beavis and Butthead principle.
Take a group of scientists dedicated to the field of genetic engineering and offer them lots of money if they can conduct a research project that will benefit mankind.
Beavis and Butthead are sitting in the back of the room not paying attention…
The rest of the scientist start thinking about what kind of ground breaking research they can conduct.
Beavis and Butthead begin to get bored as the hours pass… Beavis asks, Why are we here again?”
A nearby scientist explains that they need to come up with a genetic engineering project to benefit mankind.
Butthead: “Why not make monkeys that glow in the dark?, That’d be cool…”
Beavis: “Yeah, glowing monkeys.. Heh heh,…heh, heh!!!!”
Nearby scientist #1: “Well, it is possible scientifically, but nobody would ever fund it.”
Nearby scientist #2: “I was supposed to be home 20 minutes ago… It’s my kids fifth birthday and I’m supposed to pick up the cake… I’m fine with the glowing monkeys.”
Beavis: Yeah… Yeah!!!!
Nearby scientist #1: “Yeah, it is getting late… I’ll just make up some flimsy excuse for the project… What’s the worst thing that could happen… They say no and we get another week to think up something good…”
Butthead: “Ummm…. Cool.”
I hope that clears things up for everyone.
