U.S.—Senator Ted Cruz had challenged Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, telling her, “You’re a dummy! I bet you don’t even know anything about science!”
Ocasio-Cortez didn’t take it lying down. “I’ll show you!” she said as she started shaping some clay. “I interned for Ted Kennedy, and I’m going to make a real working volcano using science!”
Cruz looked at the clay volcano Ocasio-Cortez made but wasn’t impressed. “Sure, it looks like a volcano, but you can’t make it erupt like one. That’s impossible.”
“Just you watch!” Ocasio-Cortez said as she poured baking soda into the clay volcano.
“Common household baking soda?” Cruz questioned. “How can you make a volcano with that? You’ve gone mad.”
“No, I just know science!” Ocasio-Cortez said and then poured vinegar into the clay volcano. It then erupted with a white foam.
Cruz was terrified. “Aiee! She’s a witch! She’s made a real volcano, and she’s going to kill us all!”
“It’s not witchcraft,” Ocasio-Cortez explained. “It’s science. Baking soda is dehydrated bubbles, and vinegar reinflates them. Water doesn’t work as water kills bubbles since they’re closely related to the aliens from Signs.”
“I’m no match for her science knowledge!” Cruz screamed as he fled from the Capitol in terror.
Ocasio-Cortez stood triumphantly, but that was soon ruined by a janitor demanding, “Who made this mess?” causing Ocasio-Cortez to flee as well.
