Count your chromosomes

George is sooo happy! He’s just come off Google.

He’s gloating over his chromosomes. Absolutely cock-a-hoop!

It seems you (aka homo sapiens) have 46 while betta splendens (aka me) has only 42.

Well, George, if you want to be competitive, let’s have this out. Go on – go look in the mirror. Take a long, hard look. What do you see, you old flab? Not a pretty sight. Now, come back and look at me. No contest, eh? Game, set and match to Colin!

Look, George, it’s not how MANY chromosomes you have, but what you DO with them.

Sometimes less is more.
