Jessica Lee. The “Best Yearbook Quote” Award definitely goes to Jessica Lee. Her yearbook quote “Fluorine uranium carbon potassium bismuth technetium helium sulfur germanium thulium oxygen neon yttirum” seems innocent enough. Are we applauding her for her enthusiastic show of the periodic table? No, not necessarily. A closer look at her quote shows quite a different story. Decoded, it reads as:
(F) flourine (U) uranium (C) carbon (K) potassium (Bi) bismuth (Tc) technetium (He) helium (S) sulfur (Ge) germanium (Tm) thulium (O) oxygen (Ne) neon (Y) yttrium
And there you have it! Innocent elements of the periodic table turned into Notorious B.I.G. lyrics. Quite different from your average sentimental highschool yearbook quote, but then those didn’t win the award.
