Puppy molecule

Py or, "Puppeh molecule" consists of a tiny body and 2-ear compound.

Fun Facts! It's also:

1. The smallest particle that still retains puppeh properties!
2. An electrically neutral group of four paws!
3. Has the average mass of a Hm (hamster) and Mo (mouse molecule) combined!


You forgot the puppy molecule is held together by strong chemical bonds of Ki (Kibbuhls) and Bn (Bits), Dr. Matthew M.!

omg how sweet

Little known fact: the tail of the Py molecule is an important part of making little boys, including Sp (Snips) and Sn (Snails).

haha. what an awesome caption and hovertext to start my day! thanks, meg!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 08:46 AM

Don't forget the Nm (Nom)!

You just know this is going to blossom into a complete Periodic Table of Qte, don't you?


[Yes? - Ed.]

[...no, seriously, you know how many there ARE, right?? - Ed.]

i wish there were something in the photo to give the relative size of the Py - say, a Susan B Anthony dollar. i mean, where does he fall on the WSAM (Wee Scale of Animule Molicules)?

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 08:49 AM

Puposterous postulation.

Rather than "biology", I'd call this science "QTeology".

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:00 AM

Quickly! To Qte Junior Qemistry set!

McPuppersons is all head. S/he must have a very big brain.

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:11 AM

If this were my pupperson, her/his name would be EEP! (with the ! at the end)

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:22 AM

omg. the cuteness!!!!

i can't wait for the Periodic Table of Qte!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:22 AM

and everyone knows that Ky (Kitty) molecules will not bond with Py ... I think my science teacher said that is how atom bombs explode.. hummm should have paided more attention.... :-/

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:31 AM

Please do tell, what kind of miniature Puppitude is this? Mini weiner dog?

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:34 AM

I think CERN should changeits priorities instaed of looking for the Higgs Boson they should start looking for the Meg Qteon

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:34 AM

The nerd inside me is itching to correct -- for it to be a Periodic Table of Qte, those would be "atoms," not "molecules..." but then compounds have to be molecules (molecutes?) -- so E would be ears and Tb would be Tiny Body, to make Puppate. Or something.

Bah, who cares about science, I just wanna give it a hug! X3

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:43 AM

Golden, methinks it's a Wa (Wah-wah).

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:45 AM

Er, wait, that should read E₂Tb = Puppate. Qte-istry is hard.

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:53 AM

Funniest cap-shon and qtest hovertext this year so far ! :))

Can't wait for even more witty comments by chemistry-literate peeps !

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 09:56 AM

Golden, that has to be a chihuahua. Most miniscule of puppitudes!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 10:10 AM

this is a minpin, i had four of them, they just look so cute and helpless, but they're soooo mean and very noughty little bits!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 10:42 AM

Bebeh's qteness, definitely must be ionic... free radicals, or something. Bonds quite easily to all who get within its radius of cute! (and to think I used to get A's in chemistry... so long ago... and I have a cold so I can't think... can I take this QTE chem pass/fail?)

KRONCHE! (swallers pup whole)

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 11:03 AM

Careful - puppicules are unstable, and may cause splosions of mass destruction.

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 11:26 AM

Awwwwhhhh! And that's his little quark next to him!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 11:28 AM

OMG!!! He's like the miniest of toffe-chips! Nom nom nom..

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 11:47 AM

*giggles @ quark*

We've discover the 7th quark:
Up, Down, Top, Bottom, Strange, Charm & *Qte*

Thanks Nancy!!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 11:50 AM

Babelglyph, I'm glad you broke the element vs molecule ice. I am a huge fan of the Periodic Table!!(Wait, did I type that out loud??) Anyway, I think Py is definitely an element: "The smallest particle that still retains puppeh properties" And then there is Pr, which combines nicely with Py when Py is not yet housebroken.

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 11:53 AM

I did't do well in high school chem, but I figured out your puppeh chem right away, Now I feel so smart!! Thank you!!

I would definitely buy a poster of a complete Periodic Table of Qte!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 01:28 PM

What a cutie patootie! Come to my house little one!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 01:40 PM

I don't see how you could POSSIBLY not carry that wee pupling around in your rack or pockie or wossname --

(a molecule is not a particle, but it's certainly cute - but not cuticle)

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 02:39 PM

Rebecca, that is a great idea... we should tewtelly make that poster. I'll do it in my spare times. [shifty eyes]

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 02:44 PM

See, if they'd taught me chemistry with FUZZYOHMAGAWCUTE! instead of numbers and symbols, I might have paid attention!!

The Qte teaching method - makes learning fun AND fluffay!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 02:48 PM

Very cute! I really, really hope there will be more additions to the Qte Table of Elements! And I would buy a Qte Element poster for work and for home.

Please, please give us more of these awesome posts!

Love what ya'll do!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 03:59 PM

Yep. The more you know...
Now that I have the recipie, I can reconstruct my own puppulence in abundence!
Bwaaahahaha! Off to the laboratoriee....

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 04:38 PM

I LOVE this. :) Thanks, Meg! You really outdid yourself on this one!

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 05:26 PM

I wasn't good at chemistry, so I'll just say, "Aww! Eggshell head!" That's what their heads feel like when they're this little.

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 06:01 PM

Well I hate to nuff, but it's just wrong to leave this pup sitting there all cute. Don't you people know it's dangerous? I had a friend whose next-door-neighbor's chiropractor's girlfriend's BFF had an adorable puppy and they let it sit there all cute and do you know what happened? The cute puppy grew up and became a dog and they still let it sit there all cute and 15 years later IT DIED!!! Puppies are not meant to be looked at and cooed over. They are meant to be kept in hermetically sealed bags for their entire lives because it would be just cruel to let them interact with people, other animals, toys, food, boxes, articles of clothing, or Japanese anime characters. If you let them have a life they may get hurt. Like in this photo. Stuffed toys can put out this puppy's eye! So can running with scissors. (People, don't let your pets run with scissors.)

End of nuff.

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 06:38 PM

This puppy looks just like our Chihuahua Meda when she was little. So adorable.

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 07:14 PM

Okay, I'll leave it to the others to work out the Qte Periodic Table....

....as long as I get to write the Tom Lehrer-esque song that recites all of the Qte Elements!!!

"There's Puppium and Kittium and Snorglese and Micro-Nom,
And Squee-geum and Nosicle and Toe-beansum and Splodium...."

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 08:41 PM

mmmm toffee chips!

While usually displaying a very high ionization energy, often after a big dinner, Py becomes an inert gas.

 |  Jan 06, 2009 at 08:59 PM

This reminds me--I know a tiny little yorkie named Quark :D And as if yorkies weren't teensy enough already, I think he was the smallest of his litter, so it's a very fitting name.

 |  Jan 07, 2009 at 02:19 AM

Theo- this is a great idea. Just think of tje license-ables that could come out of this- posters, calendars, shirts, quilt patterns, mugs-the mind boggles. Now, we do need the best Peep Chemists working on it - it has to be well researched and produced, but, as for me, sign me up for a wall poster and a quilt pattern. and other stuff as it comes along. Please do work on this-Christmas/Hanukkah, Kwaanza, Three Kings Day, Devali and some Eid or another is (are) less than a year away! Morph the wall calendar into this project, pretty-please? Am I the only person who has a readily-available copy of the scientific one at hand a all times? I think not! We are a happy bunch of Nerds!

 |  Jan 07, 2009 at 04:39 AM

@nix: ya gotta be careful with yer names, nix.... There is a fresh soft white cheese called "quark," too. But I don't think that that was meant by the owners of the puppehquark.

 |  Jan 07, 2009 at 04:46 AM

I am hoping to get a degree in biochemistry. I wish that I could put this Py particle into a test tube and sneak him into a chemistry class. I'd keep sneaking huffing breaks of him during the class, and try to keep him away from the Bunsen burners. Of course, the professor would ask me what's up, and might confiscate the test tube and keep the Py particle all for himself.

Sorry, I have to break in here.
