Important Rat Study of the Day

By Debbie Schlussel
In yet another useless study, researchers learned that rats prefer water sweetened with saccarin to cocaine.
The scientists, in a study presented last week in San Diego at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, said that this demonstrates the addictive potential of sweets, which might explain the rise in human obesity. Yes, like coke versus sugar is the eternal choice for humans and they must choose between the two. On what planet?
They needed a study to determine that rats like sugary water over coke? PUH-LEEZE.
Exit Question: How much tax money went to fund this?

Oh, wait, the study was conducted by Magalie Lenoir of the University of Bordeaux in France. Cool. French tax money was wasted on it.
Pity.

Okay, so the money was wasted by the French. We had a Senator a while back named William Proxmire who used to give out awards for waste and political pork such as this. Too bad we have the idiots in Congress that we have now. They never learn and neither do we. We keep putting the same jerks back in office.
