Scientists at the Kodos Institute in Argentina, South America, have discovered a genetic mechanism for patronisation.
Genes are curled up little things inside your cells, which tell your body how to make itself. You get them from your mother and father when they make you.
The clever people in the white coats have worked very hard to find a tiny bit of these genes that everyone who is patronising has. It means that we will soon be able to find out if anyone is patronising and help them.
Hang on, there's somebody at the door. I won't be long. Don't try to fry anything while I'm gone.
