On the Rise of Science Comedy

I bring you Helen Pilcher of on the rise of science comedy:
The comedic potential of particle accelerators or neurotransmission may not be obvious, but in the right hands they can be a recipe for mirth. And science has its own cast of wacky characters — from bongo-playing physicist Richard Feynman to gold-nosed astronomer and moose owner Tycho Brahe.
Moose owner? Now I'm, jealous! The full article also discusses the Ig Noble prizes, which are always a hoot.

And Shame! I haven't posted here for a month. What can I say, except that life is BUSY.
