The Most Outstanding Sentence of the Year

From AOL Health: UCLA Scientists Identify Possible Baldness Cure

There is just so much ridiculous packed into this one sentence I can't even attempt to process it all at once:
"Our findings show that a short-duration treatment with this compound causes an astounding long-term hair regrowth in chronically stressed mutant mice,' Million Mulugeta, an adjunct professor of medicine in the division of digestive diseases at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a corresponding author of the research, said in a statement.
1. "Chronically stressed mutant mice." Unsuccessful spin-off of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

2. "Million Mulugeta." Made-up name. It HAS to be! It's too amazing to be real.

3. "David Geffen School of Medicine." Affiliated with the Joan Rivers School of Law and the Alfred Knopf School of Hairdressing. What?

I know lots of people named Million Mulugeta. They tend to be princes of Nigeria.

Interesting fact: Nigeria has been a republic since independence.

Just googled Million Mulugeta. He seems to be real (Ethiopian?). This very blog entry is the third hit for his name - I'll bet he'll be real happy about that if he happens to be googling himself this weekend.
