Another semester of teaching the mechanism is over! Last year, Rick Bunt of Middlebury College wrote this festive end-of-the-semester song for his students (sung to the tune of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”). It’s so good we thought we’d post it again!

You’ve had Spanish and Bio
And History and Calc,
Physics and Econ
And Poly Sci and Soch.
But starting this fall…
The most difficult
course of them all?

Karty, the Organic Chemist
wrote a very long thick book.
And if you ever saw it,
you wouldn’t even want to look

All of the orgo students
used to run away in fear.
They always thought that Orgo was
scarier than old skunked beer.

Then one late night final’s eve,
They all came to say:
“Karty with your mechanisms,
won’t you lead our study sessions?”

Then all the students loved him
as they quickly aced the test
Karty, the Organic Chemist
that book is the very best!

Happy holidays! We’ll be back in the new year!
