Gotta say, as someone who grew up watching the real ones, this is funny as hell!

Pruitt, now a science teacher at Tampa Catholic High School in Florida

I know it's not irony, or poetic justice, but after Florida passing their "we don't care who you are, just baby sit the kids in school please", I find this fact amusing. Sadly amusing.

Horrible. Those are a few sidelined careers. And 55 collaborative publications. Oof.

As a scientist, I feel being sentenced to teach high school biology the rest of your career is an appropriate punishment for data fraud.

One of the best science teachers I had in high school faked in credentials and eventually lost his job when the lie was uncovered.  He inspired me to become a scientist.
Later on, he repeated the whole fakery thing in another state and got caught again. I pity him, because with some work he probably could have been what he pretended to be, he just had to take shortcuts and lie.
