This one was Leaf's idea. First he wanted to a scientist who couldn't make any progress with his studies, so he decided to restrict his studies to turtles, then I came up with a monster who learned by eating books, and we met somewhere in the middle. Here is his poem:
He would work all day and night
He was a scientist that liked to work on how the world was made.
And never made any progress at doing it while doing it was very fun for him
So he worked very hard but did not have any progress
So then he decided to do science on turtles and he had a lot of progress
