Hello to all the fine feathered folks out there on this lovely Thursday! That last sentence is wishful thinking because I’m drafting this post on Wednesday night.
Yesterday’s “Mel” Ott post has given us the statistically significant evidence necessary to create a brand new Funny Names Theory – the first new theory since Amb turned 100 (though she still looks 22 to me)!
But first, a moment of silence for Neuroscientist Ryan Gosling, who is my hero of all heroes:
… Back to our own scientific developments:
The Ogden Nash Omission Prohibition
If funny named poet Ogden Nash wrote a stanza about a funny named baseball personality who is featured in one of Rob’s posts, that stanza will be featured at the end of the post.
… and Rob “ott” to follow it up with a comment saying “You go, [so and so]!”, and if he fails in either of these particulars, it shall be declared a balk, and shall be followed by Rob’s beloved Padres finally winning the World Series (which we’ve always expected would signify the end of the world).
So there you have it! Proof that although Funny Names Theory may look static and unchanging for a while, it actually obeys patterns of punctuated equilibrium. Now, how can I turn that in to a sexy “Science Gosling”-style pickup line?
