Goat brains

Most amusing question asked at the BA Festival of Science: “Do people who ate goat brains when they were young get schizophrenia?”

This was at a panel session of top UK psychologists and neuroscientists. After the laughter died down, one of the panel members volunteered, “I ate goat brains when I was young.” A few seconds later, another said, “So the answer would be ‘yes’ then.”

(I hasten to add that people weren’t laughing at the questioner, but at the random and faintly absurd nature of the question, thus I still am a nice guy).
