The following is an article from The Annals of Improbable Research.

"Astronomy, it strikes this observer, attracts an inordinate number of grail
references because the field naturally lends itself to exaggeration: the
biggest supercluster, the oldest galaxy, the most distant supernova, the
brightest gamma-ray burster, the most massive supermassive black hole, and so
forth."

Via Muse, who adds: "If you have ever written a post-graduate thesis, this
should be especially funny."

Share and enjoy,
