    The Bush War on science continues apace. Biology Professor P.Z. Meyers reports on what Bush really meant with last night’s comment about man-animal hybrids. (Tip credit: COD)

    BONUS: The lyrics to the song alluded to in the title are just too perfect, so I’m going to spill the beans. Yes, it’s another song by the Floyd. Make sure you read down to the third verse; Roger Waters must be psychic.

    Pigs (Three Different Ones)

    Big man, pig man, ha ha charade you are.
    You well heeled big wheel, ha ha charade you are.
    And when your hand is on your heart,
    You’re nearly a good laugh,
    Almost a joker,
    With your head down in the pig bin,
    Saying “Keep on digging.”
    Pig stain on your fat chin.
    What do you hope to find.
    When you’re down in the pig mine.
    You’re nearly a laugh,
    You’re nearly a laugh
    But you’re really a cry.

    Bus stop rat bag, ha ha charade you are.
    You fucked up old hag, ha ha charade you are.
    You radiate cold shafts of broken glass.
    You’re nearly a good laugh,
    Almost worth a quick grin.
    You like the feel of steel,
    You’re hot stuff with a hatpin,
    And good fun with a hand gun.
    You’re nearly a laugh,
    You’re nearly a laugh
    But you’re really a cry.

    Hey you, Whitehouse,
    Ha ha charade you are.
    You house proud town mouse,
    Ha ha charade you are
    You’re trying to keep our feelings off the street.
    You’re nearly a real treat,
    All tight lips and cold feet
    And do you feel abused?
    …..! …..! …..! …..!
    You gotta stem the evil tide,
    And keep it all on the inside.
    Mary you’re nearly a treat,
    Mary you’re nearly a treat
    But you’re really a cry.

    I think you might miss the point of that verse. It was quite specific and now very anachronistic; it is about a person named Mary Whitehouse, a campaigner for morals on television in Britain in the second half of the 20th century. Check en.wik...ehouse .

    In ways it might be prescient, Mrs Whitehouse was definitely from the same mould as Mr Bush.
