For those who missed it

Someone, unbeknownst to me, taped my dissertation defense, and uploaded it to YouTube. If anyone wonders what we biochemists study, here you go:


We’re Dealin’

The Mission Territory Parody Department is back after an extended break. I will leave it to my devoted reader(s) to determine my ulterior motive at this characterization…

(to the tune of “We Are Called“)

Come! We’re open tonight!
Drive ’round the lot, our prices are right,
All our cars passed a ten-point inspection,
And for your protection,
Our best guarantee…


Buy our cars! We’re sure that you’ll like ’em!
Buy our cars! Get a beach trip for free!
Buy our cars! No credit? No problem!
There something for one, and for all!

What? Can’t find our lot?
Just look for the spotlight off I-95!
We have all our cars washed, waxed and spotless!
Forget our street address?
Find the American flag!


Look! Our special this week
Is a ’96 Taurus with ten thousand miles!
It was owned, by a granny from Cincy,
Drove only on Sundays,
To the church down the street!


Once you’ve purchased a car,
For service, don’t worry, we’ll handle it all!
From your oil, to a bad alternator,
Or something more major,
No job’s too big or too small!


You know you’ve been thinking about evolution too much when…

You read this headline on CNN, “Whales may have slipped into ocean,” and start thinking about what must have happened when the first primordial whale ancestor fell into the ocean and found that he could swim.

You can’t make this stuff up

Moments of pure irony from the past few days:

California legislator who voted for a cell phone while driving ban gets in wreck…while talking on the phone.

New York Times makes a spelling mistake in an article on Dan Quayle.

I think I may make this a regular feature…

The real reason not to make animal-human hybrids

The Caveman has discovered why we should not mix human and animal DNA to create a hybrid. Don’t say I didn’t warn you before clicking.

The cure for traditionalist blues

Imagine going to confession with Pope John XII.

“Oh, that’s not that bad. I’ve done worse, and I’m the Pope!”

Further evidence of cultural decline…
