I'm writing an article about naming genes. I'd like
to mention some interesting, clever, or just funny
examples. Drosophila, of course, is the organism
with most creative gene names.

So, I'd like to ask you, what is your favourite
gene name? Please provide the explanation of the
name also, as I'm not a Drosophila researcher
