Q. What do undead string theorists absolutely crave?
Q. No, I’m serious!
This may be an indication of how far string theory has seeped out into the general meme pool. I mean, I don’t think a webcomic — even one of general geek interest — has made a joke about gerbes lost forever like tears in rain.

In our geeky household, that joke has been around for a few years, along with variants about vegetarian zombies craving grains, and constipated ones craving brans.
And I thought they craved testable hypotheses.
The live ones do, but we’re talking about the undead — i.e., those who’ve been Department Chair for too long. . . .
We really need a parody of “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” right about now.
