TV Shows Ain't The Real World, Part 81

Hey folks, TV shows ain't the real world!

Something for your amusement.  I had posted this a while back on my personal Facebook account.  It is a screen shot of a mass spectrum used in the TV show, NCIS.  Please look at the text.  Hold back laughter.



Sorry for the clarity - the lighting in the room wasn't the greatest.



Even though it doesn't really make sense, I still want this mass spec! The sample that was analyzed was gastric contents of a decedent. It identifies "chicken stock", coffee, and cocoa! Also it identified some random water, "protein", and of course a mass spectrometerist's favorite, sodium! Maybe that's what makes up the "chicken stock"?  One good thing is that the chemical formula displayed for coffee is actually caffeine and the one displayed for cocoa is theobromine, so at least that makes a tiny bit of sense and they got water's formula and sodium correct too.
