Those high-falutin' academics

So I have the radio on in the background while I'm working here. A v. fancy professor, a scientist, is being interviewed about jellyfish (as harbingers of ecological disaster). And he says: " go a Chinese restaurant, you can order jellyfish thingies..."

Hee. Somehow I find this heartening, knowing that a fancy academic is on national radio talking about the things he researches as "thingies."
