    Sounds like Rat’s adding another chapter to his “Chemistry for Idiots” book.

    Where is Pig’s party. I thought Rat and Pig shared a house. In that case, difficult for Rat to miss the party.

    “there’s just no chemistry between us”

    Dern party poopers! ’Course, I am one.

    Probably for the best if you want to avoid a violent reaction.

    Valence electrons hang right above the curtain electrons.


    They attract dust.

    MNquiz, I was thinking that too.


    But maybe Pig is having his party at Chucky Cheese’s….. I know my friends never want to go there with me.


    Or…. maybe he’s having it at some dive, where his friends don’t want to mix with the negative elements.

    Rat’s made of antimatter. All he has are positrons orbiting antineutrons and antiprotons. His quarks are all messed up… How he avoids going boom is a mystery to physicists…

    OK we can cover the coming lame attempts at puns by reporting about the chemist who deals with valence all week in Valencia, Spain only to confront spouses’ valance hanging job while somewhat alleviated by playing the old Richie Valens collection. (Hoping to reduce the cleverness in the usual comments department by 20 or so).

    @SusanSunshine

    LMAO! Brilliant!

    Rat doesn’t want to go because there might be a Banjo Fatality.

    I’d exclude Pauly Shore too…

    Rat = helium (least reactive element)
    Pig = oxygen (bonds with nearly everything)

    Also explain that you are full of Noble Gas, and your outer shell of valence electrons is full, and you have little inclination to participate in reactions.

    hey chemo-nerds, here’s best periodic table on the web! www.ptable.com
