Funders to insist that all scientific groups contain at least two men

BREAKING.  In an unprecedented move, a consortium of the world’s leading funders has come together to insist that all scientific groups must contain at least two men, and preferably many more.

“It doesn’t matter what the group is for”, said a spokesman, “It could be authors on a paper, a collaborative group, a committee or just a bunch of people getting together over coffee.  We don’t care – it just has to contain at least two men and preferably many more” he finished.

“What we want to do”, said a second spokesman, “Is to make sure that there is enough manliness in all scientific groups.  More testosterone.  More ‘sausage’, if you know what I mean.  We can’t be allowing groups to contain too many women, that’d be weird”, he finished.

However, the wind was taken out their sails when The ScienceWeb revealed that in fact it is already the case that all scientific groups contain at least two men, and no additional legislation is needed to increase the “sausage-quotient” in science.
