Donald Showalter, in the science video said
Blue to red, ac-ed, blue to red, ac-ed
It's got a quasi-rhyme so you never will for-get
Blue to red, ac-ed, blue to red, ac-ed

Ooooooooooh, he likes explosions
He talks like Fire Marshall Bill

So now you got your cheat sheet for the litmus test
Blue to red, ac-ed, blue to red, ac-ed
And if you just can get it into your little head
Blue to red, ac-ed, blue to red, ac-ed

Yeeeeaah, his buddy Hoffman
Acts like that scientist on Sesame Street

    General CommentHi. My friend Chris wrote this.

    This is about those crazy high school chemistry videos, "World of Chemistry." The host was an old, mellow gentleman Roald Hoffmann. In sharp contrast was his sidekick, the crazy Donald Showalter, who performed the demonstrations. The experiment in question was how litmus paper changed colors when it reacted with a basic or acidic solution. "The litmus paper turns red. Here, let me help you remember that. Blue to red.. ac-ed." Of course, he did the experiment with a base as well, with disappointing results. "Red to blue... base," he says slightly dejectedly, as if he laments there is no easy rhyme.
