Anyone wanna rhyme Lieblich?

I wanna try "John Q. Public"

I guess that leaves out German.

"you can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think."(snip)

And the companion: "The difference between an enzyme and a hormone is that you can't hear an enzyme."

Would someone please explain this one? What are we supposed to think? (The first one - about the horse and water - is easy).

Let me retell it;
Professor: Can anyone tell me the difference between an enzyme and a hormone?
Student (me, actually): Well, you can't hear an enzyme.

that work?

No, unfortunately. I even ran all versions through a speech generator (in case my pronunciation of any of the words was wrong - it wasn't), but it still doesn't remind me of anything else but its meaning as written. I can turn "you can't hear an enzyme" into "you can't hear'em in time", but that's too far-fetched, and I can't think of anything suitable for the "hormone" part.

If the difference between the two is that you can't hear an enzyme then it follows that you can hear a hormone. Say it out loud.

It's one of those chiasmus things...your mind is supposed to supply the unspoken second part, so:
Q: What's the difference between a nun praying and one bathing? A: One has hope in her soul...
(Unstated complement: ...the other has soap in her hole.)

Q: What's the difference between a seamstress and a viola player? A: The seamstress tucks up the frills...
(Unstated complement: ...the violist *** up the trills.)

So: if you can't hear an enzyme, can you hear a *** moan?...r

Uff, thanks. It turns out I pronounce "***" wrong, but it wasn't in the original text, so I couldn't check. I would have never guessed it without your explanation.
