“My favourite genes? Levi 501's.”
~ Gene Simmons on Jeans

The gene is a hypothetical biological entity proposed by renegade scientist Richard Dawkins. It supposedly carries a given part of hereditary information from one generation to the next, in a manner analogous to the meme. It was further proposed that the entire genotype of an organism was made up of many smaller genes, in the same way that bureaucracy was proven to consist of small 1-D loops of red tape.

Genes have been developing and mutating for a long time. Despite this, some have retained their original look and feel, examples of which are the Levi's and Wrangler genes. The recently discovered Tommy Hillfinger gene was not found suitable for people named Henry. The latter therefore created their own gene, called the Fubu Yoohoo gene.

edit Genes vs. Memes

Whilst memes have been scientifically established entities for centuries, since Gregor Mendel's pioneering Chinese Whispers experiments, genes are regarded as highly theoretical and borderline-mythological by the majority of biologists. Those who cling to this discredited theory are termed geneticsists and regarded with the same combination of incredulity as naked evolutionary biologists (Hobos).

edit The Spengler Experiment

In 1992, an experiment to prove the existence of genes was carried out by Dr. Egon Spengler of MIT using fruit bats, white mice and a rather boring little plant (arabidopsa boringificus). Because the key property of genes is that they can be spliced and recombined ad-hoc to grant organisms special new powers (cf. Superman, Spiderman, David Anchovy) from X files, the experiment set out to prove that genes existed by creating a hybrid flying mouse which was capable of photosynthesis in a darkened room.

Unfortunately the experiment was a spectacular failure; the resulting organism merely acquired a vulnerability to tobacco mosaic virus and sported a pair of antenna. This proved that genes are not a satisfactory explanation for the phenomenon of genetics, and ever since the gene has languished in the same scientific no-man's land as air, gravity, evolution, rice pudding and Antarctica.

In 1997 Dr Spengler's arch nemesis, Boris McJohnson, was responsible for the infamous botched spider experiment in Greenland. His scientists were hoping to create a new race of super spiders that could operate checkout tills, thus filling the void in the service sector- these spiders could then be paid in flies- at the going rate of 6 flies per hour. The work was carried out in secret in Greenland. Unfortunately they fucked it up and inadvertantly created a huge breed of giant spiders- 40 feet high and 60 feet long (including the tail). "They are are frikkin huge" Verne Troyer once remarked. The mega spiders feed exclusively on the brains of their human foes. The ramifications on Greenland's bergeoning tourist industry was massive.

edit Why Genes are Bunkum

The current crop of geneticists refuse to concede that the gene is as implausible an entity as the "atom", and furthermore claim to have deduced its chemical composition. Based on pioneering research by famed theoretical architects Watson and Holmes in the 1950s (which revealed that spiral staircases were in fact composed of two helical bannisters, slightly off-pitch), they believe that genes are composed of double-helix strands of deoxyribena numpty acid, a chemical currently used in the production of GM crops.

HRHprincecharles

HRH Prince Charles, renowned expert on science, debunked the myth of the gene at a conference in Bristol.

This argument was refuted by the British Dark Overlord of the Mysterious Ways of Science HRH Prince Charles in one of his famous lectures on science:
Cquote1 Deeper inspection reveals this "DNA" proposition to be flawed: if all "genes" were made of the same chemical, surely all life on Earth would share the same genetic structure, and be absolutely identical. In fact, all life on earth would consist of blanchemange. Cquote2

The common consensus is the HRH has got it right, and DNA has absolutely nothing to do with cellular biology, further debunking the concept of the gene.

edit The eyeless gene

Geneticists are generally considered as eccentric or even mad due to their strange beliefs and they often make stupid jokes about a jellyfish going to the dance and pulling a mussel. When geneticists claimed to have discovered a gene which triggers the expression of an eye in a creature, a gene that was universal throughout the entire animal kingdom, they called it the “eyeless gene." An eyeless gene causes eyes to grow? This is just such an example of a stupid joke made by geneticists.

As if this weren’t enough, the geneticists claimed that they had managed to grow eyes all across the body of a fly (14 in one case) by adding the eyeless gene to different parts of the fly’s genome. This clearly reinforces the “mad scientist” image of geneticists.
