Winner for the “bad article titles of the week” award: “Homeotic Supersymmetry,” by Barenboim and Lykken. I made it halfway through the abstract before I realized that I’d misread the title. (And that it wasn’t nearly as interesting as I’d first expected)

  1. I mis-read that as well. Except that instead of reading it, my head went, “WTF?—Damn, those physicists have been stuck in the lab with each other too long!”

  2. Admittedly, the paper talks about fermions getting conjugated, and they do spin both ways….

  3. Um, damn, I also did a double-take on those author’s names.

  4. Hmm… wow, I missed that somehow.
    And no, this paper is apparently not an April Fool’s joke.
