Gorton's Law

In the tradition of Internet adages, I’d like to add another. In any discussion of sea life, no matter how rare, strange or disgusting, some knucklehead will always ask how well it goes with lemon or butter. I am calling this Gorton’s Law.

  1. It probably won’t gain the same traction as Godwin’s law, but thought I’d give it a try. Just something that irks me. Of course, the ones most guilty of Gorton’s Law might be the researchers who study sea creatures, no? Seems like many presentation that I’ve been to where they discuss rare biota always end with an anecdote about cooking pots. ;)
