Lewis Carrol, blinded by science
Kirsten, my trusty blog friend from Enjoy Every Sandwich, pointed me in the correct direction when she suggested Jabberwocky as the source of the whimsical speech that accompanied the Protein Synthesis ala' Hair video.
If you listen closely to the narrator, she refers to the poem through out the whole interpretive dance. My most favorite part was this section of the narration:
"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy"
