Help, PHD Comic [Oct. 30th, 2008|10:12 pm]
Lab Rats


Can someone explain to me the last panel in this comic? I am very weak in my biochemistry... or at least that's what I think they're getting at with the joke...

I don't get it either. I searched for "thn qu" and got a lot of netspeak for "thank you".

In this comic's thread, sludtke42 says, "The third seems to interpret to wham bam thank you mam, but clearly there is more to it. No idea what the symbols are... "

Also, I'd love to go as a zinc finger (or a leucine zipper!) but I'm not going to a party w/ biology people.

I was a knockout mouse last year.

Were you missing a particular gene (and if so, which one) or did you go as a particularly sexy rodent? ;-)

I am totally going as a knockout mouse this year :) I even have a fake nobel prize to carry around.

If I were partying with biology people, I'd totally be TATA binding protein.

I'm considering going as 'breast cancer awareness month', although I'll save TATA-binding protein for later. ;-D

That's the Wham-bam Thank you, ma'am holoenzyme which Professor Xavier Fuggedaboudit discovered in the late 80's at NYU if I remember correctly.. He shared the Nobel with Margaret EyyWhatchoodooin for her cloning work. Truly seminal, seminal research.
