Also, it's not like anyone actually calls up the Nobel committee to double-check things.
Title text: Also, it's not like anyone actually calls up the Nobel committee to double-check things.

[edit] Explanation

Some pregnancies are different than others, but a universal truth except in cases of Cesarean section is that a baby will always exit a woman's body through the vagina. Cueball is wearing a white lab coat and holding a clipboard, looking like a doctor, telling Megan that until the second trimester, the baby may decide instead to exit through the anus or mouth. The caption reveals the truth, that Cueball simply bought the lab coat, he is not a doctor, and pranking Megan.

The title text implies also that in addition to faking being a doctor, he has also faked being a Nobel laureate, on the logic that people will not choose to verify this claim.

[edit] Transcript

Cueball: Well, until the second trimester, the baby hasn't decided which opening it will exit through.
Megan: What?
Cueball: We'll hope for one of the lower ones, so it won't be fighting gravity.
Did you know you can just BUY lab coats?

You don't need to call up the Nobel committee, just check Wikipedia. Also, how did Cueball manage to infiltrate the hospital? Benjaminikuta (talk) 18:29, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Checking Wikipedia would be just that, checking. Going straight to the source (the Nobel committee) would be double checking... Mumiemonstret (talk) 11:10, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
