      I was given a book of science and engineering limericks for my birthday which is pretty cool.
      I have been known to sing the They Might Be Giants version of “Why does the Sun Shine?”
      Theeeeeeeeeee sun is a mass of incandescent gas a giagantic nuclear fur-nace
      It’s a brilliant (if in accurate) choon

      Hi Thistle 2010,

      I still remember one poem which I read once in an article,
      Amoeba Song
      Amoebas are very small…
      Oh aii ooh,
      There’s absolutely no strife
      living the timeless life
      I don’t need a wife
      living the timeless life
      If I need a friend,
      I just give a wriggle
      split right down the middle
      And when I look
      there’s two of me
      Both as handsome as can be
      Oh aii ooh,
      there’s absolutely no strife
      living the timeless life.
      😀 😀 😀
