The first one might be a little long, though funny. I'd go with the second.

If I'm not mistaken, these are the raw ingredients for the human body. I remember the Cosmos where Carl Sagan mixed them all together in a big jar. Nothing happened.

You are correct-- but judging from the rest of that request, they're going for "Full Metal Alchemist." It would be pretty hilarious, but I, like others, wonder if it wouldn't be too long.

Talking Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

Not exactly FRC related but BSA....

Asking a rookie camp counselor (Counselor-in-Training, CIT) to go from Scoutcraft to the Waterfront for 200 feet of Shoreline. Very expensive, and the Pioneering class needs it now!

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

We asked for a flux capacitor every year. (Classic prank, we're not very creative). Last year, the head mentors had a meeting where they got a notice saying that this is unprofessional behavior and a waste of the FIRST guys' time.

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

I feel like asking for funny things on the PA is going out of style. I'm not sure if this is good or bad.
