(First iteration of this puzzle here, reading this puzzle is certainly not necessary but might help give an idea of what to do)

Hey guys, my friend just got back from one of his intro science classes (I don't know the exact subject) and he wanted to tell me a cool factoid he had heard. Unfortunately my friend managed to goof it up even worse this time. He couldn't remember the order of the words in the sentence in addition to his mistakes from last time! This is what he told me:

Doofus
White donut, Garden rain bringer
Thorny smooch singer
Not west laterally
Golden touch, Picked by the ear, Post-shower hair care tool

I was able to determine there were also two instances of

"the"

mixed in there as well.

Can you guys figure out what my friend was trying to tell me?

A wild guess, probably premature, but everyone's favourite saying from school:

Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell

'Golden touch'

Could be none other than our King Midas, Midas = Mito

We have two instances of 'the'.

'Not west laterally'

i.e. East = is

Not sure of the others, but I thought I'd just brainstorm this down.

From Dan Russell

Picked by the ear

Corn --> 'chon'

Post-shower hair care tool

Dryer --> 'dria'

White donut

Powder --> Power

Garden rain bringer

Hose --> House

Doofus

Oaf -- Of

Thorny smooch singer

Seal (Kiss from a rose) --> Cell
