Two muppets named top scientists: I could not agree with this decision more. Honeydew and Beaker were the original geeks for me.
Muppets Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his assistant Beaker defeated Dr. Strangelove, Dana Scully of “X Files” fame and Star Trek’s Mr. Spock to be voted Britain’s favorite screen scientists on Monday.
They beat their closest rival by a margin of 2 to 1 and won 33 percent of the 43,000 votes cast in an Internet poll.
Poor Beaker. He was so abused. It was like the internship that never ended.
