ABSTRACT: I suppose that if you were to tell people, “Hey, I’m putting together a website! It’s going to be all songs about SCIENCE!” then this is exactly the kind of thing they would expect to hear. It’s a skiffle-ish song with a ukulele and improvised percussion about the largest arthropod ever introducing itself to you and your friends and going out for Chinese food. There it is. I read about that huge freakin’ creature and thought, “Dude! Children’s song!” or something like that. And now, I find myself humming the chorus in the shower. Now to see if I can get this second, penitentiary song up before the month’s end….
