Yes, you read that right. Corn - fucking maize - has more genes that us. I see the number of genes for our genome range anywhere from 20,000 to 30,000. While corn goes anywhere from 30,000 to fifty-six-fucking-thousand genes.
So what the fuck, corn? What the fuck is your problem? YOU'RE FUCKING CORN. Your lazy ass grows in one spot, and then you either get creamed, steamed or popped. What the fuck do you need with so many goddamn genes? Are you too good for alternative splicing of introns and glycosylation or something? Do you HAVE to have a special snowflake gene for every single thing your kerneled ass does (which again, isn't a lot. Because FUCKING CORN).
Between this and being the organism in which Barbara McClintock discovered the existence of transposons, you seem to think you're better than everyone else. Well FUCK YOU AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON CORN. GET OUT OF MY TEETH AND OUT OF MY LIFE. I HOPE YOU WIND UP AS PART OF A TACKY THANKGIVING ORNAMENT YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT.
