Astronomer's Humor: Part 4

In browsing arXiv this morning, I found an article that's guaranteed to be interesting. The title is "Haloes gone MAD: The Halo-Finder Comparison Project". The MAD in the title isn't an abbreviation for some instrument, but rather, the paper takes its name from a conference from May 2010 in MADrid, Spain.

Tee hee.

So why do I know this paper is going to be interesting?

They told me so.

"27 interesting pages, 20 beautiful figures, and 4 informative tables accepted for publication in MNRAS."

We'll have to see whether it's interesting enough to write about for UT.
