Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Just read an article that reported how many Dylan references there were in the titles (long titles) of published Scientific papers. About 250 were found, parodies/puns on Dylan lyrics. The same team found 350 ish Beatles references.

It demonstrates that scientists are not all po-faced, and it probably increases readership. Dumbing-down? Yea a bit. But ya gotta laugh.

Smiley face, Smiley face, Singing face. -
Yea Vic, just pointing-out that without telegraphing the joke you come up against those: hard of thinking, hair-trigger people, and they exist a-plenty, even on Mudcat. (excluding me and you, of course).
