Good Nerdy Pickup Lines

The editors are asking us for the best pickup lines for scientists and science-savvy folks. How’s about this: Hey baby, that’s a nice cleavage furrow, how about we introgress? I promise, no incomplete penetrance.

Polar Bear Shrinkage

To be filed under: “Every dude who’s gone swimming in a cold pool in the Hamptons could have told you that.” Polar bear genitals are shrinking: The icecap may not be the only thing shrinking in the Arctic. The genitals of polar bears in east Greenland are apparently dwindling in size due to industrial pollutants.…

Euphemisms for Penis in the Backfield

Is it possible to have a news item about college football, with people whose names remind you of musical legends, washed up rockers, and supporting actors in a Peter North movie? Could this be the perfect intersection of sports, pop culture, and dirty jokes? This story reads like a casting call for a John Holmes…

Double Entendre Friday – IS DEAD!!!

After a short, and dirty, run, the evolgen Double Entendre Friday has shuffled off its mortal coil. I just can’t keep it up week after week (double entendre not intended). Of course, if I do come across something particular distasteful with a dash of sexual innuendo I’ll include it in the list of double entendres.…

Double Entendre Friday – 07 April 2006

This week’s evolgen Double Entendre Friday is brief. It’s also not my own idea, and I can’t seem to remember where I stole it from (if I stole it from you, drop a note in the comments). Sorry. Here it is: Two glutamines bump into each other waiting to aminoacylate a tRNA. One says to…

Double Entendre Friday – 31 March 2006

Help! I need some more double entendres. Help! Not just any double entendres. Help! You know I need some biology double entendres. When I first proposed this wacky idea I figured I’d add funny biology terms to my list as the weeks went by. Well, I exhausted my original list quite rapidly, and now I’m…

Double Entendre Friday – 24 March 2006

I’m running out of good biology related double entendres, and I want to wait a few more weeks before I post those that people suggested in the comments or that I stole from other blogs (don’t worry, I’ll give you mad props if I jones something off you). So, for this week’s evolgen double entendre,…

Double Entendre Friday – 17 March 2006

Today marks the anniversary of the death of St. Patrick — the dude who ridded Ireland of its non-existent snakes (some folks claim it was a metaphor for pagans). In honor of this great feat, people around the world drink green beer and pretend to be Irish. What does that have to do with double…

Double Entendre Friday – 10 March 2006

Today’s evolgen Double Entendre Friday deals with the genetic phenomenon known as incomplete penetrance. Ok, maybe this one isn’t a double entendre, but more of a pseudo-homonym (can you guess what it sounds like?). When students in an introductory biology course are taught about dominance they learn about recessive and dominant alleles and maybe some…

Double Entendre Friday – 03 March 2006

Today, I will begin a new tradition at evolgen. There are a lot of topics and terms in the biological sciences that sound like something else; many of these fall into the category of double entendre. I’m quite immature, so that kinda stuff really amuses me. Every Friday I’ll try to come up with another…
