“What’s the opposite of formaldehyde?”/ “Casualdejekyll.”

“Formaldehyde” has nothing to do with the gothic novella Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1886)  by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, but there are jokes. This was posted on Twitter by Adam Cerious on January 28, 2020:
   
“The opposite of formaldehyde is casualdejekyll.”
   
   
Wikipedia: Formaldehyde
Formaldehyde (systematic name methanal) is a naturally occurring organic compound with the formula CH2O (H−CHO). It is the simplest of the aldehydes (R−CHO). The common name of this substance comes from its similarity and relation to formic acid.
 
Wikipedia: Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a gothic novella by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1886. The work is also known as The Strange Case of Jekyll Hyde, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, or simply Jekyll & Hyde. It is about a London legal practitioner named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde. The novella’s impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the phrase “Jekyll and Hyde” entering the vernacular to refer to people with an unpredictably dual nature: outwardly good, but sometimes shockingly evil.
