Hey folks, thought I'd link to this.

Readers of this blog will see echoes of the Dave Kelly/Todd Goldman thing, and rightfully so. This is more or less exactly the same. A large company working through freelancers printed a shirt with a design ostensibly ripped off of a webcartoonist.

I had a long rant about what I think about this sort of merch, and whether or not it's worth getting upset about, but then I realized nobody (myself included) cares. I feel I ought to show it out of some sense of solidarity, but I don't honestly have terribly strong feelings one way or the other.

MORE IMPORTANTLY! I got the best email ever the other day:

Hello!

I wanted to say that this strip:

http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=807#comic

is one of the best science jokes I have ever seen. I liked it so much that I was inspired to start a new project:

I remembered that lots of biology teachers are using Gary Larson cartoons to teach their courses, since remembering something is far easier when it's connected to a good joke. Thus I started a wiki which collects links to such jokes and also explains the punchline as an aid to teachers and those who want to increase their understanding of science on their own:

http://science-jokes.wikidot.com/

I entered a link to your strip (together with an explanation) here:

http://science-jokes.wikidot.com/valence-electrons

I hope you like the idea of the wiki, and I'll have to go through your archives to add links to your other science jokes as well. Anyway, I hope you like the idea of the wiki. Keep up the good work!

Cheers,

- Jurgen Hubert



Sounds awesome! Go go go!
