Researchers at the University announced yesterday the discovery of a new genome on the seventh cromosome that links with tone-deafness.

“The is a tremendous achievement for the University community,” said David Trumpet, head researcher for the Chromosome and Hearing Research Committee. “A capella groups nationwide can now rejoice because tone deaf individuals will be told of their ineptitudes before they can even speak, let alone sing.

A team of eight research who have been working on this project since 1995 said they are pleased with the expediency of their findings.

“We have been competing against Michigan State on this project and I am thrilled to say that we were indeed the first to locate the proper gene,” Trumpet said, adding that MSU”s announcement in 1999 that they had located the proper gene had actually been the gene that determines dyslexia.

By the way, I understand if you don”t want to read this anymore really, it”s OK. I know it”s boring. It”s certainly not grabbing my attention, let alone yours. Go ahead, do it the crossword puzzle, I mean. Really. It”s on page 6. Have fun, and think of me while you answer number 17 across.
