 There's this classic, from the immortal Harold Baum (The Biochemist's
Songbook, 2nd edition.1995)

(to the tune of Good King Wenceslas)

Winter solstice celebrate! Hail the festive season!
Wise men cease to cerebrate! Take a rest from reason!
Super ego is defined (Ellis and Karminski)
As that part of human mind soluble in whisky.

But beware, for ethanol at levels elevated
In liver cells, in cytosol, is dehydrogenated
NADH to NAD - the ratio's distorted
There's aldehyde toxicity (as recently reported).

With NADH levels great, your lactate is frustrated
It can't go to pyruvate to be carboxylated
And sad to say that furthermore, and in that same connection
The poise of acids at C4 is in malate's direction.

Oxaloacetate is low, carboxykinase slowing
PEP* formation de novo no longer can keep going     
Why this is a menace is manifest quite clearly
Gluconeogenesis grinds to halt (or nearly).

You may blame the awful toll of hangover sensation
To some higher alcohol, or simple dehydration
But don't forget that in one sense, beer, gin or brew illicit
Have metabolic consequence that's common and implicit.

Blood sugar low, the liver fat, they're also calorific
The moral therefore of all this is though we feel terrific
As we imbibe this Christmastide, our life span's getting shorter
But whilst we're waiting till we've died - go easy on the water!!

 *(you have to sing 'pep' - pee ee pee won't work!!)

Good luck!

Mike

Subject: Christmas Skit material needed

Ho! Ho! Ho!

I was wondering if anyone has some Christmas skit material that they
wouldn't mind sharing?  I am thinking of a re-written Christmas carol
perhaps or something not too challenging for first time performers...

eg..

""Joy to the world my QC is in...""


Needed for a "show" this Wednesday!

Thanks in advance,
Christine
