Obviously "Wolf News" in this comic is a reference to Fox News, which has referred to U.S. Secretary of Energy and Nobel Prize in Physics winner Steven Chu as "an incompetent experimental physicist" and claimed that Chu "couldn't find his, you know, butt with either hand." Considering Chu won the Nobel Prize for implementing the first magneto-optical trap, I felt it would only be fitting if the guy who said those things could go to the lab and show us experimental physicists how it's done. The Fox News reporter's line in panel 4 is of course a reference to the "fact" that Steven Chu invented the Scroll Lock key that appears on most keyboards.
