As you are all aware, I am a sucker for science (especially chemistry) humor/nerdiness (same thing), My girlfriend, Anilee, wrote this poem for her class and shared it with me, and now I share with the masses. It made me smile. If you've never taken a Gen Chem class...well...that's ok...

When molecules are organic,
Carbon to Hydrogen will be bound.
The functional groups,
Consist of different compounds.
The simplest group,
Is the one called Alkane.
The specific name is determined
by the number of carbons in the chain.
When drawing the molecule
bonds in equatorial position are most stable.
The diagram's name is "chair".
So don't draw a table.
