We really need to stop
naming new plant varieties
and comets after the people
who first discovered them.
Think about it for a moment –
they didn’t invent anything,
they just saw what was already there.
So let’s agree on a new rule
shall we, plant varieties will
henceforth be named after
rock bands with at least
one gold record, and comets
after random lines from
either Hamlet or Macbeth
but the person discovering
the comet gets to choose from which.
