It is no secret that directors have been surreptitiously placing "Easter Eggs," or pop culture references in their films. However, several scientists from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden have just confessed to sneaking Bob Dylan lyrics into their work for 17 years.
And who have been doing this? Among them are Jon Lundberg and Eddie Weitzberg, two big Dylan fans.

Lundberg is a Professor of Nitric Oxide Pharmacologics and research group leader for the Pharmacological Nitric Oxide Research at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology.
Weitzberg on the other hand is a Professor of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology.
While their specializations are different, their research and penchant for adding Dylan lyrics into their articles are similar.
One example is, "Nitric Oxide and inflammation: The answer is blowing in the wind," taking from Dylan's song that was originally released in 1962.
The Local, Sweden edition recently reported that the two professors and scientists started a personal tradition of using as many Dylan quotes as possible in everything they wrote, including: articles, editorials, book introductions, and much more.
Afterwards, three other scientists were practicing the exact same thing. They were eventually put in contact with one another.
Now, there is a running bet between the five researchers that whoever could sneak in the most references before retirement will get treated to lunch.
Weitzberg told the Local that although he would rather be remembered by his scientific work, he admits that he is enjoying this new activity.
Dylan is now 73 years old. He has been playing music since the 60's.
His music though, especially his earlier stuff that is lost on the younger generations, is finding a home with science, where it can hopefully interest more people.
