Random Thoughts

Apparently I was a bit of a science geek in my youth. Because as I was passing the water fountain in the hallway this morning, this little poem rose unexpectedly from my memory:
Johnny went to get a drink,
But he will drink no more;
For what he thought was H20
Was H2SO4.

Also, for anyone who hasn't seen this already:

...I love Australia.


  1. "Johnny went to get a drink(...)"

    My mom knows a whole bunch of those. (Although she knows them as 'Little Willie' jokes.)

    Little Willie in a fit insane stuck his head 'neath the railroad train.
    Willie's mother was surprised to find how it broadened Willie's mind.

    Little Willie, wrapped in sashes fell in the fire and burned to ashes.
    Now the house grows damp and chilly but no one wants to poke poor Willie.

    Little Willie found a mirror,
    And went and sucked the mercury off,
    Thinking in his childish error,
    That it would cure his whooping cough.
    At his funeral, Willie's mother
    Sadly said to Mrs. Brown,
    "'Twas a chilly day for Willie
    When the mercury went down."

    I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that.
