Funny Science Songs, Part Two

You might remember this one...Particle Man, by They Might Be Giants. It's off of their Flood album. Here's a funny flashplayer annimated video to this song...hit this link and then click either "view in current window" or "view in new window." Then click "play." It's funny as hell. This song is a definite classic. Enjoy!

Particle Man

Particle Man, Particle Man
Doing the things a particle can.
What's he like, it's not important
Particle Man...

Is he a dot, or is he a speck
When he's underwater, does he get wet...
Or does the water get him instead?
Nobody knows.
Particle Man...

Triangle Man, Triangle Man
Triangle Man hates Particle Man.
They have a fight, Triangle wins
Triangle Man...

Universe Man, Universe Man
Size of the entire Universe Man.
Usually kind to smaller men,Universe Man.

He's got a watch with a minute hand,
Millennium hand, and an eon hand
And when they meet it's a happy land.
Powerful man,
Universe Man...

Person Man, Person Man
Hit on the head with a frying pan.
Lives his life in a garbage can,
Person Man...

Is he depressed or is he a mess?
Does he feel totally worthless?
Who came up with Person Man?
Degraded man, Person Man...

Triangle Man, Triangle Man
Triangle man hates Person Man
They have a fight, Triangle wins.
Triangle Man...

Have a great weekend...from Phoenix Man!

I've got the album too... the Tiny Toons music video for that one is an all-time classic.

Just like Istanbul (Not Constantinople).

Thanks siren, the picture actually looks just like me, although my hair doesn't stick up as much.

I've never heard the song I must confess, but it made me laugh!
Thanks for your comment regarding chocolate. I read an article that said there is now proof that people who eat one or two real chocolates a day live longer up to a year longer!
So I'm not feeling to guilty about that big box I've nearly finished. [img][/img]

Read your post about "earworms". Learned a new word today, thanks!

Then read your post about TMBG's "Particle Man".

Now I have a "Particle Man" earworm.

I take back my thanks.
