SCIENTISTS are under attack after making a huge fuss about ‘gravitational waves’ then failing to explain what they are.
Angry taxpayers have demanded a ‘proper answer’ after the scientists spent billions of pounds on a ‘gravitational wave detector’ that no-one else is allowed to use.
Professor Henry Brubaker, from the Institute for Studies, explained: “They’re basically waves of gravity.”
Tom Logan, from Stevenage, said: “What does that mean?”
Professor Brubaker continued: “Okay, imagine the waves on the sea, but instead of water, they’re made of gravity.”
Logan said: “What the hell are you talking about?”
Professor Brubaker added: “Think about it this way – they will help us to understand the origins of the universe.”
Logan said: “Yeah, that sounds like a lot of bullshit.”
Professor Brubaker said: “Okay, fine. Einstein was a total freak and no-one has the faintest idea what he was on about. But ‘gravitational waves’ sound amazing, whatever they are.”’
