Hilarious scientific studies go viral while researchers reveal their favorite titles – including & # 39; Fantastic yeasts and where to find them & # 39; and & # 39; Medical marijuana: can't we all just get a bong? & # 39;
- Lisa Stinson discovered a funny scientific study title and placed it online
- The researcher from Perth called it the & # 39; the world's best paper title & # 39; in a tweet
- The internet respectfully disagreed with it before it went viral and started a thread
- A large number of other funny titles were posted with play on words, music and pop culture
The scientific world can be a gloomy place full of unnecessary jargon, but sometimes academics of the world let go of their sense of humor alongside their work.
Lisa Stinson, a postdoctoral researcher from Perth, Australia, makes a life in microbiome research in early life, but she went viral this week.
On her travels through many scientific studies, she stumbled upon a paper dedicated to the diversity of fungal pathogens.
This potentially rather in-depth topic was brightened up by the title of the scientific article published by Northern Arizona University researcher Marley Van Dyke.
It was conducted: & # 39; Fantastic yeasts and where to find them: the hidden diversity of dimorphic fungal pathogens & # 39 ;.

Striking other tweets include a study entitled: & # 39; An in-depth analysis of a piece of S ***: distribution of mango & # 39; s and stamens of schistosoma in human stool & # 39;
The inventive title and reference to the wizarding world of Harry Potter and Newt Scamander was published online in early June, but gained more control after Mrs. Stinson's tweet.
Her accompanying caption showed her entertainment and read: & STOP THE INTERNET! I just found & # 39; the world's best paper title. & # 39;
The first tweet now has a total of 48,200 likes and almost 15,000 retweets.
It led to a brilliant thread with scientists and academics from all over the world who share their own personal favorite paper titles.
A variety of answers stimulated the fantasy of the scientists in the common thread, with one nod to the classic story of Snow White that turned out to be popular
Puns on words, often the true passion of scientists, were released in response to the viral tweet. & # 39; Leaf me alone & # 39; was the start of a title for an ecological research
Another title, well received on social media and gathering more than 500 likes, was & # 39; Medical Marijuana: can't we all just get a bong? & # 39;
Puns with regard to pirates, cannabis and crack cocaine were mentioned in the favorite titles of the studies. Pictured: a game about words between anarchy and the famous pirate expression & # 39; arrgh & # 39;
Play on words were accompanied by clever word play about references to pop cultures with the Lord of the Rings, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (photo) and Monty Python
Notable other tweets include a study titled: & # 39; An in-depth analysis of a piece of S ***: distribution of schistosoma mansoni and hookworm eggs in human stool & # 39 ;.

The scientists also adapted custom lyrics, with inspiring scientists from Cypress Hill and Pink Floyd.

Drugs are big business for researchers because a large number of institutions and companies are trying to understand how they work in detail, their impact and the health impact they have, but a 1997 study used a play on crack cocaine to entice readers
Monty Python fans will remember the & # 39; Candid Photography & # 39; -sketch, better known as & # 39; Nudge Nudge & # 39 ;, and it clearly has a big fan in Anh H. Cao-Pham who mentions an article published last year & # 39; Nudge nudge, WNK -WNK (kinases), say nothing more? & # 39;
Pink Floyd & # 39; s iconic song & # 39; We need no no education & # 39; was released in 1979 from the album The Wall. It would be their only number one hit single
Lord of the Rings fans are everywhere and, it seems, leading the way in lasers and their use, such as in high-speed communication systems. Victor Torres Company, associate professor at Chalmers, published an article in News and Views with the title & # 39; One ring to multiplex them all & # 39;
