Mitochondria Confirm They’re Also The Power Bottom Of The Cell

Graham, L. et al.

After years of powering cell functions in the closet, the mitochondria have collectively decided to announce, proudly, that they are also the power bottom of the cell.

In the announcement, the mitochondria clarified that they are the same organelle as they always were, and don’t want to be treated any differently. And while they all identify as power bottoms, they note that are all searching the cytoplasm for different things.

“Some mitochondria are just looking for a hot Golgi body, while others prefer the kinky embrace of the rough endoplasmic reticulum,” said one mitochondrion. “Just last week, one of my best friends got engaged to a ribosome, who loves to fill him with protein.”

The mitochondria stress that despite the new freedom, the cells in your body will still operate as normal. “We take our job as powerhouse of the cell very seriously. We never power bottom on powerhouse time, except on our yearly work retreats.”
