Tom Lehrer Has Company – Dueling Elements Ditties

BoingBoing is the host of the latest video from They Might Be GiantsHere Comes Science (H/T to the commenter on Bad Astronomy).  Meet the Elements, just like the other videos from this album, an animated affair:

Completists will be disappointed, as the entire periodic table is not named.  Someone will need to squeeze the most recent discoveries (from 103 on) into Tom Lehrer’s magnum opus, “The Elements,” which borrows the music of “The Major General’s Song” and was released 50 years ago.

There’s supposedly a rap version floating around, which has me intrigued.
