The attempts by the good Dr Purple at Procter and Gamble to alter a scientific meeting abstract appears to be causing some hilarity across the blogsphere (See P&G Pharmaceuticals: how to deal with a public relations disaster [Link])
Pharmagossip [Link] posted the wonderful Deep Purple Smoke on the Water as a tribute to the good Dr Purple.
No matter what we get out of this
I know we'll never forget
Smoke on the water,
fire in the sky
Several other blog entries discussed the Waddington game Clue (Cluedo for those in the UK).

CL Psych posted an excellent discussion about Purple Haze [Link] and
Roy Poses over at the excellent Health Care Renewal included an old Scottish poem that tells it all (See : Actonel, Procter and Gamble, and Things That Go Bump in the Night)
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night
Good Lord, deliver us!
