Singing their way to better education?

Imagine a faculty member singing, to the tune of the Archies' golden oldie "Sugar Sugar," these lyrics: "Glucose, ah sugar sugar. You are my favorite fuel from the bloodborne substrate pool / Glucose -- monosaccharide sugar -- you're sweeter than a woman's kiss / 'cause I need you for glycolysis." That's how University of Washington lecturer Greg Crowther gets his points across, according to Wired. And he has lots more songs in his repertoire, including "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Chemists," and "Take Me to the Liver."


Can't imagine this flying for a CME activity, but it's too weird not to mention. Happy Friday!
