Mad Muppets top cult science poll
Don't tell the health and safety people but Dr Bunsen Honeydew and his
trusty assistant, Beaker, have topped a poll of the UK's favourite cult
The crazy duo whose experiments usually end up destroying their Muppet
Labs facility received a third of the votes.
They easily beat Star Trek's Mr Spock and Dr Who's Time Lord in a fun
survey to mark the British Association's Festival of Science in Exeter.
More than 40,000 votes were cast in the poll through the bbc.co.uk/cult
Neither Dr Honeydew nor Beaker were immediately available for comment
but their good friend Kermit the frog was quoted as saying: "They have
spread the message that science is not just for short round-headed bald
guys and their orange-haired goggle-eyed sidekicks. It's also for people
like you and frogs like me."
