It's not just Lamarck and Lysenko but the fact that they are both
faculty at "Hudson University". Even if the linked Facebook page does
not make it completely obvious, "Hudson University" is the fictitious
NYC college where crimes occur on Law&Order. Best satire, on the other
hand, is done with a large dose of reality in it. Sadly, it's not so far
off, in this case.
