Re: Bohemian Science
Absolutely amazing! Thanks for the great find! I have already listened to his song "Rolling with the Higgs" as well. Hope to see more from him!

Heard it a different way.
I first heard this joke a different way from the book, "Dogs Don't Tell Jokes" by Louis Sachar. This was a book that I read growing up
From the book:
Dogs Don't Tell Jokes, p. 198 writes:
"One day a husband and wife came up to a street corner where Officer Ed was directing traffic.
"Good morning, Officer Ed," said the husband.
"Shut up!" said Officer Ed. "I suppose you want me to stop traffic now, just so you and your ugly wife can cross the street."
"My it's a beautiful day," said the wife.
"It's going to rain stupid!" said Officer Ed. "I've never met such stupid people in all my life."
"But there's not a cloud in the sky," said the woman.
"Read my lips, lady," said Officer Ed. "It's going to rain."
Sure enough before they even made it across the street, the clouds blew in and the rain poured down. The man and the woman had to run under a doorway for cover.
"My goodness," said the woman. "Officer Ed is extremely rude."
"Yes dear," said her husband. "But he knows rain."
Well it just so happens that the man and the woman were songwriters, and that's what gave them the idea for that famous song.
Gary put his hands on his hips and looked at the audience as if surprised they didn't know the song. "Oh, com'n, you know that song!"
He spoke the title very slowly. "Rude......Officer.....Ed......Knows......Rain......Dear."
Gary repeated the title, this time singing it to the tune of the well-known Christmas song. "Rude Officer Ed Knows Rain, Dear."
There were many groans amid the laughter."
