Dropping Science

High school senior Jessica Lee dropped a little science in her yearbook quote:


Our readership does not include any chemists (sorry Mark, your bathtub crystal meth operation doesn't qualify you) so you likely don't have the periodic table memorized, making the joke hard to discern.

Still don't get it? Here's a Muppets-style cartoon mashup (featuring NSFW lyrics) to jog your memory.



"Tattoo on tittie sayin' B.I.G." gets me every time.

Mo' money, mo' problems.

that was a ballpunch of a loss for the bruins

T.J. said...

That's the clip I would've chosen as well

zman and/or Mark - what do you know/think of Atmosphere? and this dude Slug? been listening to some of that yesterday and today

T.J. said...

Jason Reid's Washington Post article about John Wall's tattoos is one of the more asinine things I've read in awhile.

Atmosphere is one of my favorite indie rap acts. Slug's dope. A little emo at times but he pulls it off. I've seen Atmosphere live 4 times and its always a good show. I believe Rob has listened to a little Slug due to his collaborations with Murs, Felt: A tribute to Christina Ricci and Felt 2: A tribute to Lisa Bonet.

Favorite Atmosphere album: God Loves Ugly

Mark said...

Read that article on Wall last night. Powerfully stupid.

Mark said...

And I've moved the meth operation to a shed in the backyard, thank you very much. Expansion!

zman said...

I can't belive we've never used the "dropping science like Galileo dropped the orange" tag before.

T.J. said...

well, now we have

Mark said...

One more thing on Atmosphere. Rob should try and see them live during his frequent travels to Minneapolis. They're from there and play live locally on a regular basis.

Whitney said...

The Stones knocked my socks off. I haven't seen much better, and I've seen a fair bit.

Also, the Avetts announced some more tour dates. Opening act for part of them? Trombone Shorty. Whoa.

zman said...

As a kid I never realized that the Baroness was stacked, an evil Daisy Duke if you will. Thank goodness for yootoob.

rootsminer said...

Nice Whitney.

I think it's great that a group of 69 year old men can still rock harder than most any other group on the planet.

And I wouldn't have thought Trombone Shorty and the Avetts shared many fans, until recently.

TR said...

They picked up where your precious Echo left off.

zman said...

A Cosby swettah, a COSBY ssssswettAHHH!

Mark said...

I know this will shock all of you but apparently Chris Berman is a terrible commencement speaker.

Whitney said...

Funny that those two comments appeared in a row because Bill Cosby was the commencement speaker at my graduation.

Whitney said...

...and also not shockingly, the Cos was really enjoyable.

TR said...

I saw Berms as a keynote lunch speaker at a work conference a few years ago. He gave a decent talk, reviewing the early days of ESPN. But he closed out his speech very poorly, abruptly transitioning into reciting his favorite baseball nicknames (the ones that he himself created years ago).

The Bert Blyleven joke didn't go over well in a mixed rowd, even when he explained in detail how he came up with the jokes. Awk-ward.

zman said...

I have many bad things to say about W&M but when it comes to getting commencement speakers they really bring it. I recall Cosby, GHW Bush, Scalia, George Will, Mags Thatcher, Sandy Baby O'Connor before during and after my time in the Burg. Mostly Federalist Society types but impressive nonetheless.

TR said...

Don't forget Jon Stewart, née Leibowitz!

Jerry said...

Pretty sure we had a dud our year. It's all a hungover blur though.

Mark said...

I friend of mine had Dikembe Mutombo as his commencement speaker. No word on if he asked anyone to sex him during the speech.

Mark said...

Like Jerry, I have no clue who my commencement speaker was. Wouldn't have mattered. I had headphones on and was listening to Stankonia.

Jerry said...

Was he graduating from Pete Newell's Big Man Camp?

Jerry said...

I almost certainly had some Stankonia wafting around my general vicinity.

rob said...

bob gates was mine. and clarence's first.

zman said...

Bon Gates took Clarence's virginity?

T.J. said...

Some boring donk who wrote a Thomas Jefferson biography was my graduation speaker. After puking in the parking lot per-commencement I really don't remember much else. But hey, at least it wasn't 95 with 90 percent humidity...oh wait...

Dave said...

i just heard a kid at ian's piano recital sing that element song. very impressive, but singing about chemistry is never going to help you score chicks (unless it's part of the rock'n'roll triumvirate).

Mark said...

SUNY Cortland, Jerry.

Dave said...

summer dave was working in a post, until he got too inebriated. first night of summer . . .

Alright, Rootsy's confession time: A bass player I know invited me jam with him and a couple other guys tonight. I wasn't sure what to expect, but what I got was a grueling session of dad rock. I feel gross.

rob said...

what constitutes dad rock? counting crows? train?

zman said...

Wilco and the Naional, definitionally.

zman said...

Bethanie Mattek-Sands is stretching the limits of Wimbledon's dress code.

Whitney said...

Rob, you did NOT have Bob Gates as your commencement speaker. You are nerdy enough not to get that wrong.

rootsminer said...

Shit, I don't even know what most of it was, other than being dad rock. I know some of it was one guy's tune sketches, each one sounding like the last. I'm going to take some Robert Pete Williams and try and sleep it off.

Love it when you get through airport security and realize phone is in car. Made it though. Tsa improved their stock in my eyes....when I showed my boarding pass again which was already sharpie'd I explained that I had to go back to car for phone....he said "yup, I was expecting you".
