image for How was DNA discovered?

On October 18, 1962, Drs. Watson, Crick, and Wilkins won the Nobel Prize for Medicine for work in determining DNA. At first, Watson and Crick had a lot of problems.

Watson figured out "D," but didn't know what the hell to do with it. Then Crick accidentally stumbled upon the "N," but couldn't determine whether it should be "DN" or "ND." Then, one day, Wilkins who was emptying the boys' wastepaperbasket found an "A."

Experimenting, he put it up on the blackboard next to the "DN" and said, "Eureka. 'ADN!' "

When Wilkins shared his discovery with his wife who brought him his bangers and mash, she said, "Asshole" and switched it all around to "DNA." And that's how DNA was really discovered.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
