Random Ass Bacteria

Yesterday there was a bad smell that kept cropping up in the lab. We thought it might have been the floor drain that is connected to the sewage system; it has a U pipe that should block gas exchange when filled with water but sometimes that evaporates off. So A poured a liter of water into it, but the smell appeared again.

Eventually we discovered it was coming from the 37C incubator where B and C were culturing bacteria as part of a series of experiments I have unflatteringly dubbed “poop-omics”. “Well what do you expect if you culture up a bunch of random ass bacteria!” I said.

In this case the Monroe Interpretation regarding the position of “ass” hyphenation would be the correct one.
