    May the farce be with you.

    Poor Brewster. Love your parody, Tim.

    It’s always reassuring when science confirms that which was generally thought…

    You shine the spoon and then hold the bottom close to your face….It makes it look like you’ve got a really big nose! That’s what I do with mine…..It makes me giggle….

    re: King Shark,
    .
    When science indicates that people were right in something that had been taken for granted for decades (or even longer), such as electrolytes helping cramps, or that smoking causes cancer (people have known that from observation for years, but it wasn’t until the 1960s that the science caught up with it. When my dad was a kid in the 1940s people called cigarettes “coffin nails.”) it tends to reinforce what people believe.
    .

    A caveat, however. If something is too obvious, such as some of the inane things that people get grants for, such as plants in containers eventually end up with bunched up roots, something that literally every person who has worked with houseplants knows, but was just “proven” in a British experiment a couple of weeks ago, then such “science” tends to be held in contempt. The term “rootbound” has been around for decades or longer, and the reaction people have to such an experiment is a disbelieving “they got a grant to do THAT?”

    The moron readings are even higher in that domed building in Washington D.C.

    “something that had been taken for granted for decades”…what is this something? Was the Higgs Boson’s existence “taken for granted”? Science doesn’t take “things for granted”, it tries to prove or disprove their existence.

    I wonder how Brewster’s brain — if you recall is smaller than bacteria — can produce such large quantities of Bigg Morons.

    It’s decaying, although it’s got a long halfwit-life.

    Science takes a lot of theories as fact. Sounds like faith and belief to me.

    It’s hard to believe that Dr. Mel’s preliminary studies didn’t postulate the proximity of the Bigg Moron particle to Brewster.


    Empirical evidence of such a link, while not proof, should have been piling up for decades, suggesting a path for further research.


    If he were tutoring Winky in the scientific method, and Winky overlooked such obvious pointers, why, surely,
    Dr. Mel would have his spleen!

    How come Dr. Mel always wears long black rubber gloves? What does he know that he’s not telling us?

    Dr Mel moonlights at a pizza joint, making pies. He doesn’t care about sanitariness, he just doesn’t want to get his hands dirty making the pizzas.

    Three puns in one strip (thanks, dr.mel!) and nobody remarks on them?!
