It’s all happening at the ‘Zoo February 17, 2009

Someone told me
It’s all happening at the Zoo.

I do believe it
I do believe it’s true.

It’s a light and tumble journey
From your homepage to the site,
Just a fine and fancy ramble
To the Zoo.

And you can take your own computer
If it’s raining or it’s cold
And the scientists will love it
If you do.

Something tells me
It’s all happening at the Zoo.

The spirals stand for honesty
S-noughts are insincere
Irregulars are kindly but
They’re weird.
Ellipticals are skeptical
Of changes in their profiles
And the Zookeeper is very fond of rum.

Mergers are reactionaries
AGN are missionaries
Starbursts plot in secrecy
And quasars turn on frequently.
What a gas! You gotta come and see
At the Zoo.

There. And if you still don’t get it, go take a look at Galaxy Zoo!

Lyrics Paul Simon, 1967 (sort of)

I thought it was goint to be “hello, darkness, my old friend…I’ve come to talk with you again because a vision softly creeping…..sleeping…..the sounds of silence.” Both work, don’t you think? All the best, Carla (soon to be zoo person.)
