“Dihydrogen monoxide is deliberately sprayed on organic crops”

“Dihydrogen monoxide is deliberately sprayed on organic crops”—“dihydrogen monoxide” is water—is a joke that has been printed on many images.
   
“Dihydrogen monoxide is deliberately sprayed on ‘organic’ crops” was posted on Twitter by PAUL on June 8, 2015. “Dihydrogen monoxide, is deliberately sprayed on organic crops” was posted on Funny Memes on June 9, 2015.
   
     
Wikipedia: Dihydrogen monoxide
The dihydrogen monoxide parody involves calling water by an unfamiliar chemical name, most often “dihydrogen monoxide” (DHMO), and listing some of water’s effects in a particularly alarming manner, such as accelerating corrosion and causing suffocation. The parody often calls for dihydrogen monoxide to be banned, regulated, or labeled as dangerous. It plays into chemophobia and demonstrates how a lack of scientific literacy and an exaggerated analysis can lead to misplaced fears.

Dihydrogen monoxide is deliberately sprayed on “organic” crops.
It’s known for countless deaths via drowning and bloating. #WakeUpAmerica
