U of C in the Onion

"Scientists Theorize What Would Happen If They Touched A Cloud." Excerpt:

A group of scientists from the University of Chicago raised new questions during an international nephology conference held there Tuesday, speculating what would happen if physical contact were initiated with a cloud, the weather phenomenon described as a visible mass of condensed water suspended in the troposphere.
I guess this means that the U of C has become the pinnacle of pointless pedantic inquiry.
