When DNA first became the top-of-the-line research, science journals and popular science magazines became the home of ads for research materials and instruments. Some of these ads where whimsical, some outright funny, and some that could be construed in a humorous vein. I collected lots of them, extracted the part that struck my fancy, and added a name to each. They are organized here in three acts and an encore.
