Here's a brilliant spoof by Martin Robbins at the Guardian's Lay Scientist - how to write a science article of thoroughly mediocre quality that gives science its current illustriously stupid and confusing name.
The comments are also a good giggle, and don't forget to move your mouse over the links at the end to see what they really are. (You don't have to click on them.)
I hope you laugh as much as I do. And rap my knuckles if you catch me doing any of it.
If it made you grin, you might also chuckle at the "Daily Mail Reporter"'s tweets, too. (If you're not in the UK, the Daily Mail is one of Murdoch's many tabloid newspapers and is not famed for its sense of civilisation, proportion, rationality, or . . . well, you get the picture.) I first noticed this guy (or girl?) when they tweeted: "Have you ever known, met or slept with anyone famous? The Daily Mail would like to hear from you." Scenes of a mass bombardment on the way . . .
Update: Martin has followed up his post with a serious look at what could be done to improve science journalism, also very well worth a read.
