Worst (Science) Pun

    I’ve just read the comments to the original post… can’t wait for the rant about the cognitive linguists.

    I think it’s only appropriate to post these lyrics here :-D

    “I’m an Alchemist baby
    I can turn heavy metal …. into gold
    I can make unstable compounds of mercury explode

    I can make you glow
    I can make you phosphoresce
    I can burst your bubble
    I can make you effervesce

    Science tells you love
    Is just a chemical reaction in the brain
    Let me be your bunsen burner baby
    Let me be your naked flame

    You’re going to turn bright red
    When I do my litmus test on you
    Acid it was, acid it is
    And what acid was true

    Check out what’s in the test tube baby
    You’re my little pipette
    The favourite piece of apparatus
    In my chemistry set

    Science tells you love
    Is just a chemical reaction in the brain
    Let me be your bunsen burner baby
    Let me be your naked flame

    You’re the kind of carbon I can date
    You’re the element that makes me passionate
    There’s a chemistry experiment
    I want to try in my brain
    So come close to the Bunsen Burner
    Feel the Heat of the naked flame”

    – John Otway, “Bunsen burner”

    Haha, that’s a good one! Though marred by the fact that no archaeologist these days tries to “date peoples”. We may discuss the dates of an archaeological culture, but we no longer believe that such a culture equals a “people”. In fact, we pretty much do not believe that any “peoples” exist at all, now or in the past.
