“And why again did you suspect you received the placebo?”

“It’s no problem, that a little dosage adjustment couldn’t fix.”

“Why the cold stare? It’s snow big deal ice say.”


Bill Russo:

Maybe he'll feel better if I offer him some handheld Raman noodles.

With my 21 CFR Part 11 compliant electronic signature, I've determined he has a corn-cob pipe, and two eyes made out of coal.

After observing vibrational, rotational, and other low-frequency modes in his system, we've concluded that he's made of snow.

What am I doing out here making snowmen? I should be inside, warming up while making handheld Raman noodles, instead.

Frosty the Spectroscopic Man

I don't need the spectroscope to tell me that he's about to become water.

I see what's wrong. You're made of talc.

Roxane.... You don't have to put on the red vine leaf extract.

Frosty...Those days are over...You don't have to melt your body in the sunlight.

Data integrity failure. Snowman made of talc, not snow.

Mylan is betting $7.2 billion that he'll last longer in Swedish winters.

There must have been some magic in that spectroscope they found/For when they pointed it at him/He began to melt down

I'll be famous for discovering new technologies. Soon, all the North Pole will be at my feet.
