The satirical Onion asks people in the street what they think about the cow genome being sequenced. One says, "All that in just six years? Wow, that's so amazing. If you can't tell, I'm being sarcastic. And I'm being sarcastic because I don't understand the significance of the study" while another wonders, "We can map the genome, but will we ever unravel the bovine mind?"
Too true. Too true.
