    :confused: What are those comics mean?
    How is it associated with the vocabulary mentioned?

    You must first know the standard IUPAC nomenclature for aromatic compounds to understand these jokes.

    Ph.D. --> doctor --> doc
    1,2 substituted positions in the benzene ring --> ortho (substituted)
    ortho docs --> orthodox

    The jokes in Part I are way better than those in II.
