If some crazy German-American scientist hypothetically spliced together the genes of Robin Williams and Joaquin Phoenix, would he or she end up with Michael Stuhlbarg? Well, in German “Stuhl barg” translates to “chair salvaged”. Old chairs are usually made of wood which of course comes from trees, and trees is where you usually find our feathered friends, and both a robin and a phoenix are birds. Confused? Don’t worry. DNA splicing is bewildering to the layman but like RNA splicing, we suggest you TRUST THE SCIENCE!
