(light techno music) - [Interviewer] Got any favorite science jokes? - Um, my favorite, I have, yeah I do. So one day there's this rabbit and he's going to the woods, and he meets this, the wolf, and the wolf says, "I am going to eat you." And he says, "No, you can't eat me. "I'm working on my doctorate, "I'm doing my dissertation, I'm almost done.
"Can we just hold off until I finish this, "until I submit, 'cause I've been working on this so long?" Wolf says, "Well, I appreciate that, "that seems like you've put a lot of energy in, "OK, we'll postpone eating you." And so a few more weeks go by and he runs to the rabbit, he says, "No, I thought I was done, "you know I got some edits and so I got to go back "and do this, and I got to fix that." and the wolf's like, "Yeah, yeah, I understand, "so why don't we, we'll wait another couple weeks." So this goes on a few times and the rabbit's like, "Yeah, you know what? "I graduated, so yeah it's your time, "we agreed you can eat me, "but why don't you first come back to the cave "and I'll just, so I can show you "what I've worked on all this time "so you get a chance to see all this." So the rabbit and the wolf go back to the cave.
They go in the cave and there's a lion that kills the wolf. And so what's the moral of the story? It doesn't really matter what your dissertation is, it's just who your advisors were. (interviewer laughing) - [Interviewer] Perfect. (light techno music)
