One example is exemplified by the following cartoon:
Note the following:
- The 'scientists' are all male, wear glasses, and are middle-aged.
- They wear white coats.
- They miss some very obvious facts, which explains why we haven't been able to
understand how dolphins communicate: They speak Spanish!
- The 'scientists' are weird and maybe not very smart? (Also have bad haircuts.)
What's wrong with this picture?
