Stuff written while I should be working on my next novel.

A poem as by OGDEN NASH on the advisability of Nobel prize winners trying to be funny.
If you assay a remark jocular
Don’t be surprised to be poked in the ocular,
For you do not need to be oricular,
To know that “funny” remarks about how women burst into tears in labs, and either fall in love or don’t fall in love (and yet both of these are somehow bad) are now rightly considered to be insulting both to the gender in general and your immediate colleagues in particular!
