Nobel Laureate Professor Peter Doherty tweeted about the opening hours of Australian liquor retailer, Dan Murphy

We know that Australians will choose
The first moment they can to buy booze
And when their boffins think
That it’s time for a drink
That’s something the public will excuse

Scriptural boffin Dr Dirk Obbink (above) has been arrested on suspicion of stealing priceless ancient papyrus biblical fragments from a collection held at Oxford University

Even in Oxford’s top echelon
They don’t pay that much to a Don
So it’s alleged that Dirk
Took papyrus from work
To the States, and then he sold it on
