third try: Merry Christmas WEF-ers
OH B-O-D (to the tune of O Tannenbaum)
Oh B-O-D, Oh B-O-D, You are so biochemical
A little sample and then some seed. So plain yet diabolical
To set you up is such a breeze. Just five short days at 20 degrees
Oh B-O-D, Oh B-O-D. Pray the blanks don’t deplete on me.
First get the bottles all lined up. Then calibrate the meter
Aerate the water; prep the seed. And don’t forget the Winkler
Pipet your samples in “just so”. Make sure they have enough D.O.
Now load the samples on a cart. Incubate them five days in the dark.
If Wednesday morn you put them in. Next Monday all your woes begin
All the dilutions that you tried. Were either too low or else too high
All your controls are out of range. The calculations just too strange
Oh B-O-D you are so great. The test that we all love to hate
We all eagerly waiting to see the live version on Youtube.
Merry Christmas to y'all and thanks for the chuckle!
