    In one of my exuberant moods, I feel it's high time that we have a thread in honour of our favourite Indian-American (I'm actually part Indian myself) physicist: Gokul.

    I don't really talk to him or participate in many of his threads, but from what I do see, he is a good guy.

    This is for you buddy.

    Well, I realized he's surpassed the 3000 post mark (he's up to 3055 or so now), so that's a good enough reason for celebration for me! :buggrin: to you too! :biggrin:

    I must be a shameless thief then. :blushing:

    Folks this is really embarassing. :blushing:

    I really can't imagine what jcsd's been drinking or inhaling ! :blushing:

    I've been pretty heatedly (by my standards) arguing with Jason recently, so it's awful decent of him to not call me a moron, or somesuch. :blushing:

    Thanks y'all !!!!1111 :buggrin: at ya Tsu ! And, oh yes...:blushing:

    The Ballad of 43201


    The Ballad of 43201

    Stuck in an airport our Gokul's
    Been seized by security yokels —
    "Flying while brown" is their cry

    Oh no, it's the anal probe — flee!
    To escape just hop in the RV
    That Tsu's driving down from the sky

     Tsu, just ignore the ice
     You put that pedal to the floor
     So they can't mess with our Gokul no more

    So poor Gokul now off on the lam
    (Where tribdog supplies him with ham)
    Pines for GaAs and a laser

    But the Feds have now gone to code red
    So he hides out in Evo's tool shed
    Sending Fauchon whene'er he repays her

     MIH, go fetch your shotgun
     With Jaws of Death sit at watch by the door
     As warning not to mess with our Gokul no more

    Then PFers are brought to detention —
    Virtuosi all of stupid quetions —
    Thus the dragnet for Gokul's undone

    For in response to their queries
    They're fed unlikely theories
    Ending "Four Three and Two Zero One"

     Hey y'all, set them a treasure hunt
     We can lose them in Ulan Bator
     To show they'll not mess with our Gokul no more

    Indeedy no — they'll not mess with our Gokul no more



    Note: GaAs should be pronounced by letter here rather than as gallium arsenide – this all scans badly enough without adding extra syllables... :wink:
    And Gokul – my apologies if you don't eat pork.

    Yet another poet on the board! Plover, how are you at limericks? Don't tell me I chose tribdog too soon when we have other wordsmith's here I could have given my attentions too! :biggrin:
