A toast to cosmology

Now, rye didn’t I think of this? Update: If that link doesn’t work, the page is cached here.

Oh well. Crusty as I am, all I’d get out of it are a bunch of crumby burnt offerings, anyway.

Tip o’ the chef’s hat to Derek from Skepticality.

    Link worked fine for me. I also loved the guy’s bit about the imminent damage to the internet due to Ron Paul dropping out of the race…

  2. Weird. I see it as being gone now too. I updated the entry just in case.

  3. Aerimus

    Very funny. I laughed by buns off.

    I’m having no trouble at all with the page.

    Best article ever!!!

    Those atheists see weird things everywhere!!

    Next they’ll start seeing Phil Plait’s face on a dog’s butt!!

    It’d be better than seeing a dog’s butt on Phil’s face.

    Hahaha… Good one!! I hope the BA doesn’t mind us making fun of him like that!

    Ohh well, I’ll just buy his book and I’m sure he’ll forgive us! ;-)

    I think i saw the Cosmos in a slice of pizza once…..or it might just have been the arrangement of the pepperoni topping….Bad Lunch? !1!

    Good one! I saw the Face on Mars in a chocolate chip cookie once.

    Did you catch Dr. Neil Degrasse (Sp) Tyson on Colbert last night. Colbert is now an Astrophysicist.

    I toast your having posted this, butter don’t see anything myself. Doughnut what is supposed to be there.

    I saw Cosmos once while eating a piece of pizza. Does that count?

  12. I caught a glimpse of the cosmic background radiation in my refried beans and enchiladas at lunch today. It was a fleeting glimpse of the infinite in my tex-mex until the cheese melted a little bit more. I’m now keeping an eye out for something akin to the Ultra Deep Field image in a taco shell.

    That’s not the Big Bang! That’s Isaac Crouton. Or is it Sir Bread Hoyle?
