Colbert on the Economics Nobel

Well, not Colbert, but a guest.  But this still is worth considering.

Stephen Colbert interviewing Dr. Peter Agre of Scientists and Engineers for America

Stephen Colbert: “You said ‘anyone who grew up on a farm knows that evolution exists’. OK, are you saying a monkey can milk a cow?”

Peter Agre: “Well, if I can milk a cow I suspect a monkey as smart as I am can milk a cow.”

SC: “Are there monkeys as smart as you?”

PA: “I’m sure there are quite a few, quite a few.

SC: “Oh really? Mmhum. Do they give a Nobel prize for throwing your own feces?”

PA: “……..That’s the Economics prize, I think.”
