Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.353 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: There are lots of in jokes for people in academia. The names include references to famous scientists. (E.g. Dirac + arachnid). The professor mistreats his grad students to the point where he literally eats them. Etc.

Con: It’s not that funny, and the jokes are really all there is to it.
