bro might i recommend this one?

hydrogen combined with oxygen. but oxygen wasn't feeling too happy.

the reaction wasn't strong today. Bromide, Iron, iodine, were good friends. Sodium was a lone-wolf. Hydrogen picked a fight with Bromide so his friends got involved in the reaction. Hydrogen said, "Hi, dro" Bromide said "Bro! Mide 'I' say something" Iodine said "Wait, I o' din' nothing, talk about fear" Iodine left...

Iron said "I-I-Iron do nothing man! serious" Hydrogen said "gen's, get dro facts straight" Bromide said "Bro, i only have circles, please!" Iron said "I o' din' nothing so I ain' givin my electrons" Hydrogen said " you better give my oxygen some man" Iron quickly said "Iron doing nothin' man, so i'll go get oxy" meanwhile bromide let off a fart and iron burnt with oxygen and hydrogen got so angry it fused to helium and the a squeaky pop was created. The pop was muffled by the fart and the burnt Iron let off heat and the lab exploded. The coppers came and Iodine once again, said "I ain't doin nothing!!!"

In the world of chemicals, a constant battle rages between the chemical supervillains and the chemical super agents. The most esteemed of these is one (OO)7, international dyeing agent of mystery. On one particularly hairy mission, he finds himself pitted against the evil genius of lore, Dr. Nitrogen Monoxide, who has set a devious trap in the form of an ordinary piece of white cloth. After falling through a cleverly placed mechanosensitive membrane protein, (OO)7 is shocked to find himself soaking in to a tightly bound mesh of cotton fibers. (He is, after all, a dyeing agent.) In desperation, he calls to his nemesis, "Do you expect me to talk, NO?" The villain only chuckles maniacally. "No Mr. Dye, I expect you to bond."
