The Grinch plus Star Wars plus Science Budget Cuts plus Santa equal...

... well this. This being the (now pretty much) annual SCQ Christmas offering from structural biochemist and playwright, Vince LiCata.

Down in U-ville
Liked their research a lot...

FACULTY: (pipeting): I sure like research a lot.
I love running gels,
I get bored when I'm not.

NARRATOR: But the Pinch
Who lived just North of U-ville
Most certainly, did not.

FACULTY: Now, who wouldn't love labwork?
I'm sure I don't know.
They'd have to be a real jerk,
Or perhaps a bit slow.

He sings:

Fah who for-aze
Dah who dor-aze
Welcome Research
Come this way

Fah who for-aze
Dah who dor-aze
Welcome data
Every day
