At the postdoc barbecue last night... [20090724|15:14]

...I ate three postdocs. What? Physicists are stringy. Especially the theoreticians. Um, anyway, I have an anecdote.

Postdoc #1: "We were driving through Wales when I hit an owl. It got wedged in the roof rack of the van so I had to pull over. I phoned up the Animal Rescue people and said--"
Postdoc #2: "'Hi, my name is L, and I put the 'OW' in 'OWL'?'"

(Postdoc #2 featured in this post. He is, as always, Made Of Win.)
