Pharyngula

Pharyngula got a small link from Dave Barry today. It’s one word (“YIKES”, which seems appropriate), but I have a dream that someday I will get a whole sentence. And it will be funny.

Oh yes, it will be funny.

    You don’t really want to be famous, do you PZ? Having to hang around at all those chi-chi engagements with the likes of Brangelina and Gene Shalit, followed by paparazzi?

    I’d hate for one of us to have to accost you in public, saying “What’s happened to you, man? You used to keep it real. You’ve changed, man, you’ve changed.”

    Hey, Brownian, should I expect Brangelina to call because I got a passing mention by a humor columnist? Their standards can’t have gotten so low, but I guess I better go brush the food particles out of my beard and trim my toenails, just in case.

    Well, a mention by Dave Barry is only the first step; the next is a short-lived sitcom called The Devil Went Down to Morris starring Rip Torn as you and David Hyde Pierce as the devil, a non-existent entity who only appears at the most inopportune times. Hilarious hijinks ensue as the two of you are forced to room together when a runaway bulldozer demolishes your houses (the pilot guest stars Christopher Hitchens and the Dalai Lama as Rosencrantz & Guildenstern-esque construction workers). The show will earn a Eugenie, presented by the National Center for Science Education for “excellence in the portrayal of issues in science in a drama or comedy series.”

    You’d better thank us little people when you’re nominated for an Emmy as creative consultant on the show.

    Have never heard about Dave Barry before, and reading his wikipedia entry made me none the wiser (nor much better informed)

    I’ve read a book by him, in German. It’s a short explanation of America and a few other things, and makes me laugh on every page. Strangely, the original title is “Dave Barry Hits Below the Beltline”. The German title — as usual a completely independent invention — is better: it retranslates as “The axis of dumb”.
