Hoss Cartwright from Bonanza rocks the science world by joining many editorial boards

A few years ago I wrote about a brilliant and scary real world satire done by Burkhard Morgenstern:

Scary and funny: fake researcher Peter Uhnemann on OMICS group Editorial Board #JournalSPAM | The Tree of Life

Well he has done it again.  This time he has gotten a Hoss Cartwright, a fictional character from Bonanza onto the editorial board of many journals.

There he is listed as 

Dr. Hoss Cartwright, Senior Research Fellow, Ponderosa Institute for Bovine Research, Nevada, United States.

A little Googling found this blog post with more detail

So funny and painful at the same time.
