    Before Bohemian Rhapsody, we used to sing Galileo’s full name to the tune of “The Happy Wanderer”.

    A Starmus play to his audience and Pastis does a very good job.

    I know most won’t get the reference but most of us don’t have a PhD in astrophysics.

    Okay, I’ll say it: that’s not a science question. It’s history trivia.

    I think the first lines sums up this entire strip: “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?”

    Bohemian Rhapsody reminds of the “funny wrong lyrics” thing. The line “Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for meeee” sounded to me like “Beelzebub has the devil for a side-board, me, for me, for meeee”… ☺

    If you have Siri on your phone, try telling it “I see a little silhouetto of a man”.

    I find Pig’s remark in the last panel somewhat discouraging, given his answer to the question.

    You’re such a bohemian, Pig!

    It is pretty scary if Science is your best subject; do you expect to graduate?

    Actually, this sounds more like an interrogation and less like a science quiz. Also, give the age of Galileo when he made his most important discovery, his residence at the time, the distance from his house to his place of work, the number of hours he worked, and the number of wives he had, if he had any, and then multiply all numerical data by 3.14.
