In the spirit of DZ's "Monday Funnies" (which are, more often than not, exactly as advertised) here's a comic that was sent to me by a fan (read: wife). I continued the conversation for us, tongue-in-cheek of course:
Scientist: "So I can use human subjects for testing?"
NIH administrator: "Only if they're brain-dead and beyond hope."
Scientist: "Great! Call your co-workers and ask them to come over as soon as they can, then lie down over there..."
