Science at It’s Finest

For some male bats, sexual prowess comes with a price — smaller brains. A research team led by Syracuse University biologist Scott Pitnick found that in bat species where the females are promiscuous, the males boasting the largest testicles also had the smallest brains. Conversely, where the females were faithful, the males had smaller testes and larger brains.

All they had to do was ask Major Dad’s favorite question when confronted by…say…the Coors Twins:

“Why are men pigs?”

He wants the answer to be “because the trough is full”, but that’s a lie. The simple truth is:

“Because they are.”

    Ergo, Batman, being the world’s greatest detective, was really just trying to overcompensate. It all makes perfect sense now.
    Boy wonder indeed.

    Did Einstein ever have kids?

  3. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Yeah, but what does this say about Batgirl? Huh? Huh?

  4. Ken Summers says:

    Batgirl has even smaller testicles than the others. But she’s got some great TOWACAs.

  5. Cullen says:

    She was probably a lesbian. Given the Batman’s overactive cranium. Or she was getting it from the Penguin.

  6. Ken Summers says:

    And why not? I hear Burgess Meredith was quite a hit with the ladies.

  7. Cullen says:

    But Cesar Romero was the one to fiddle around with the ladies when there were all hot and bothered.

    To my oh so witty spouse; yes we are pigs but the trough is still full and always will be i.e. the Coors Twins and the Godaddy girl. Diet makes the man and we feed from the trough.

    Don’t forget the Swedish Bikini Team.

  10. John says:

    My wife sent it to me with an email to the effect that this study was proof that men think with their gonads, and that the two parts are interchangeable.

  11. “Gonads” being the technical term, as we’ve all learned.

  12. John says:

    Well, she does hold a Ph.D. in Chemistry – can’t get much more technical than that.

  13. How many months ago did we discuss the ‘scientific term’ in another post? I’m still reeling from the knowledge that it is one and not the slang I thought it was.

  14. Mr. Bingley says:

    What about “Go ‘Cocks!

  15. Those are chickens, Bingster.
    As John should be…

  16. Ken Summers says:

    Well, John, to be REALLY technical about it, they’re only “gonads” before they differentiate into male or female forms.

  17. Ken Summers says:

    I thought we cleared that point up months ago.

    Ducks? What happened to goats, Ken?
