Lab Christmas

From ThinkGeek via Toxiferous Designs

A list of Christmas carols and when they should be sung in lab:

  • When performing an ELISA, sing It Came Upon a Midnight Clear (“painful steps and slow”)
  • When your experimental chickens arrive, sing The Twelve Days of Christmas (“3 French hens”)
  • When your fluorescent dye works, get your friends to sing Angels We Have Heard on High (“Why these songs of happy cheer? What great brightness did you see?”)
  • When you’re not sure if your lateral flow strip is positive or negative, sing Do You See What I See?  (… for the title line, obviously)
  • When you really want that second experiment to work, sing Joy to the World (“Repeat the sounding joy, repeat the sounding joy, repeat, repeat the sounding joy!”)
  • Oops!  You’ve skipped a step in that protocol.  Sing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (“when we were gone astray”)
  • When it’s time to close down for Christmas, sing Angels from the Realms of Glory (“Sages leave your contemplations, brighter visions beam afar”)
  • Always, sing Go Tell it on the Mountain (“When I am a seeker, I seek both night and day; I seek The Lord to help me and he shows me my way”)

Any others to add to the list?
