It's thanks to Tom Lehrer that I, the fuzzy-headed literature student and G&S fan, AP'd out of chem classes in high school.

"There's antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium,
And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium..."

The great man himself:

As kids we wore the grooves out of his records, playing them constantly.

My other favorites: "We'll All Go Together When We Go", 'National Brotherhood Week", and the classic "Vatican Rag" (Ave Maria, gee it's good ta see ya... :) )

Thanks for the memories, Amogles!
