Notes passed in Seminar

"Tonight's feature horror film: ATTACK OF THE NUCLEOPHILES!!! News at 11."

And tomorrow's feature horror film: THE ELECTROPHILES STRIKE BACK!

Who is the attacker and who is the attackee? I tend to think of the electrophile as more naturally cast in the role of the aggressor.

Hah! Very true, but the speaker in question kept referring to a "nucleophilic attack".
