Brad Paisley Sings About Geology On "A Prairie Home Companion" - May 10, 2014

It seems geology is the butt of many jokes with those who do not share its many splendors. Viewers of the television show "Big Bang Theory" love all of the science "geek-speak" but even the producers of that show can not resist the temptation to mock the field of earth science. You can watch one piece here.

Or

Penny: What's wrong with geology?
Sheldon: Let me put this in a way you'll understand, Penny. You remember you explained to me that the Kardashians aren't real celebrities? Well geology is the Kardashians of science.

Or

Sheldon: Why do we have a geology book? Leonard, did you throw a children's party while I was in Texas?

Or

Amy: Well then, prepare to be terrified. If your friends are unconvincing, this year's donations might go to, say, the Geology department.
Sheldon: Oh no! Not the dirt people!

Well, last week on the May 10 edition of "A Prairie Home Companion", country singer Brad Paisley honored geology in a song. You can listen to it here. Way to goBrad! You even got all of the dates and names right!
