A plant pathologist is someone who hates plants. They may be seen as plant-lovers and advertise themselves by motivating that they want to save the planet by curing all plant diseases, but secretly they love looking at dead plants. During their studies they get the opportunity to inoculate plants with pathogens and watch them die. They argue that this cruel act is necessary to save the rest, however, they enjoy the moment.
John loved biology in school. His biology teacher knew it and recommended he become a plant pathologist. But he hated plants. He rejected her advice. Years later, he found out what plant pathologists actually do - they kill plants. He now lives a happy life, killing plants and looking at dead ones. His biology teacher was right.
