Snooki, Michele Bachmann And Suzi Quatro Are Officially The Worst At Science

What’s the dumbest thing you’ve heard this year? Might it be one of these? The Sense About Science Campaign has compiled a list of celebrities who have made the least scientifically accurate quotes of 2011 and Snooki, Michele Bachmann and Snooki have all been name-checked.

Michele Bachmann was of course included for her hugely damaging comment that the HPV vaccine makes young girls “mentally retarded,” a completely baseless statement. And what of the others? Here’s Snooki’s quote:

“I don’t really like the beach. I hate sharks, and the water’s all whale sperm. That’s why the ocean’s salty.”

So when you have a sore throat, you’re supposed to gargle with whale sperm? Speaking of, here’s what musician Suzi Quatro had to say:

“I used to get a lot of sore throats and then one of my sisters told me that all illnesses start in the colon. I started taking a daily colon cleanser powder mixed with fresh juice every morning and it made an enormous difference.”

Oh boy! Here’s one more from the list, courtesy of Christian Louboutin:

“She said that what is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman’s foot when she orgasms. So putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation.”
