Devo Spice Disclaimer 
This song was written for the This Week In Science podcast which is a weekly science show hosted by Kirsten Sanford- or Dr. Kiki as she's known online- and Justin Jackson. The show is broadcast out of KDVS in California, which is a non-profit college radio station. As many non-profit stations do they hold a fund raiser every year to cover the operating costs of the station. To help with the fund raiser This Week In Science puts together a compilation CD of science related songs and gives it away to people who pledge a certain amount of money to the station. This is my submission for this year's compilation. World Robot Domination was included on the 2007 TWIS compilation.

At the beginning of each show Justin does a disclaimer so that the station isn't liable if someone gets offended by any of the science news being presented. I always found it odd that science is the quests for truth and knowledge and yet it has to have a disclaimer. That, plus the fact that people tend to take the words of scientists and twist them around and manipulate them to serve their own agenda provided the inspiration for this song. In fact I I did that very thing with this song using Justin's own disclaimers.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Good song. Loved the sentence-splicing ("The Earth is an annoying thing" XD). Backing track reminds me of "Cellular Degeneration"

I've been listening to this song on repeat on my iTunes for a bit now. :D My favorite part of the song is the Stephen Hawking bit. Ha. Ha. Ha. >D
