Crazy ‘Bout Those Dwarf Males Profizzah

The Southern Fried Scientist is TA’ing Invertebrate Zoology with Cindy Van Dover at the Marine Lab here. They are having their students create a 2-3 minute podcast of a published article on invertebrate biology, called Topic in Marine Invertebrate Zoology (TiMIZ), and he is posting them to his blog and the course YouTube Channel.

I must say that I am B L O W N  A W A Y by all of their performances. Especially the latest one which I absolutely had to embed here. It stars an undergraduate working on a project with me on the population structure of the vent scaleworm Branchinotogluma. These up and coming spineless idols just put out their new release Lazy Vertebrae about this paper on Osedax (one of our favorite worms here at DSN!).

Did you hear that?? DAMN!! Those are some amazing lyrics. SFS will have the lyrics up on his blog post soon. But here are my favorites:

“All the ladies are the pimps and the men are the ho’s”
“Heterotrophic degradation equals crazy delicious”
“I’m crazy ’bout those dwarf males Profizzah”

UPDATE: Lyrics are posted here.

    We love the dwarf male WHATE- annelidea
    Its the dwarf male- WHAT- annelideadeadeadea
