It's a pivotal week for Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson. No, no, not the AFC North-deciding game against the longtime nemesis Steelers at Heinz Field, silly. Johnson has officially raised the bar by proclaiming that he will perform the "best touchdown celebration ever" when he scores against Pittsburgh.

But that's not the best part. The best is that Johnson, while wearing a Terrible Towel tucked under his chin like a bib, said that his celebration with involve the word "iron." "The key word is: iron out," Johnson said. "Everybody remember the key word: iron."


This "hint" is bizarre we don't know what to do with it. Iron? What's funny about iron? We looked up "iron" on Wikipedia and have yet to find anything funny about iron. It's the "heaviest element which does not require a supernova or similarly cataclysmic event for its formation." OK. "Some cosmological models with an open universe predict that there will be a phase where as a result of slow fusion and fission reactions, everything will become iron." Not much there, though that explains many of our old relationships. "ron binds avidly to virtually all biomolecules so it will adhere nonspecifically to cell membranes, nucleic acids, proteins etc." Yeah, not sure where Chad's going with this. Is smelting somehow involved? Any thoughts?
