Concise and punchy. I like it.

Let me toss out this theory, though: Given the way Tyson looked at Maher right after the joke, and the way Maher said “Beautiful reading” afterwards, I’m almost certain the teleprompter said “That’s fucked up” but Tyson couldn’t bring himself to say it. He went with the milder choice and the joke hit, but not as hard as it could have. But no one was upset, because it’s Neil deGrasse Tyson.
