The Wood Fall Pun/Joke Challenge

04_06_10_29DSN Readers I need your help!

I am crowdfunding some of my deep-sea research.  I need you to share the video and link with your friends.

Wood: Is It What’s For Dinner? from Microryza on Vimeo.

I am also in celebration of of everything wood fall running a wood fall pun/joke contest!  Submit them here in comments or tweet them at @deepseanews.  Next Sunday a winner will be declared as I and expert team of judges Cherry pick the winners and declare an Arbor Master!  I am logging for some really good ones.

Craig McClain is the Assistant Director of Science for the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, created to facilitate research to address fundamental questions in evolutionary science. He has conducted deep-sea research for 11 years and published over 40 papers in the area. He has participated in dozens of expeditions taking him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses mainly on marine systems and particularly the biology of body size, biodiversity, and energy flow. He focuses often on deep-sea systems as a natural test of the consequences of energy limitation on biological systems. He is the author and chief editor of Deep-Sea News, a popular deep-sea themed blog, rated the number one ocean blog on the web and winner of numerous awards. Craig’s popular writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.

  1. I could comment on how no man has ever taken so much wood so deep before, but I wooden dream of it. Yew wooden forgive me, but once I Cedar pun challenge like this one, I was pining for an innuendo.

  2. Here’s the dealio-yo-yo. I know you are all sick of Dr. M’s birtching about his lack of wood. “Hey, yew! I need more wood.” “Yew?” “Yew?” “wood.” Birch, birch, birch. At first, I was too. I elmost called the copse. But listen up: the barking, and pining might seem a biloba the top, but fir serious, it’s important. Deep sea woodfalls aren’t the most poplar branch of study, but they can help us understand how land and oceans are linked in the global carbon cycle. We’re talking biology/chemistree fusion, people. I’m knot joking. Want to know more? Go out on a limb, and axe some questions. Be a good frond, and help him out. Dr. M willow you one. Maybe he’ll buy you acacia wine, maybe he’ll owe you a steak…if we know one thing, DR. M is coniferous. Whether you can seed a lot of green, or only chips, it’s oakay. Let’s all perch in and let Dr. M do some blossom research. Time for him to take his bough.
