Feature Friday: Science humour
Okay team, I think I’ve lost it a little bit. Everyone in Melbourne will probably be feeling this right now.
It’s week-whatever of isolation. We stopped counting somewhere in August. We’ve abandoned all the hobbies we took up in lockdown-one, and find ourselves staring at phones or walls for hours on end.
I reckon what we need this Feature Friday is a bit of a laugh.
Anyone who knows me knows I *thrive* on puns and cringey dad-jokes. So brace yourselves, because I’m going to share some of my favourite science jokes!
Feel free to steal any of these for your next zoom meeting! And if you’re not in isolation, try cracking one when you see your friends next *cries thinking about seeing friends*.
This whole thing started when I wanted to post a joke about sodium, but I was like “Na, no one find that as funny as I do.”
Then I started reading a book on Helium, and I just couldn’t put it down!
Speaking of chemistry, did you hear oxygen and magnesium got together?
I should probably stick to chemistry jokes, we all know Math puns are the first sine of madness.
Back when we could travel, a photon was in checking in at an airport. The attendant asked “are you checking in any baggage today?” and the photon replied “no thanks, I’m traveling light”
You know what I also miss? Going to bars. I remember that one time a dung beetle walked into a bar and said, “Excuse me, is this stool taken?”
And then two chemists walk into the bar. The first says “I’ll have H20”, and the second say’s “I’ll have H20 too”. Only one chemist walked out.
Don’t stress though. I think they tried freezing him at -273.15°C. After that he was absolutely 0K.
I don’t know if that last bit actually happened though, an atom told me. And we all know you shouldn’t trust atoms, they make up everything!
Look I probably have a million more science jokes, but all the good ones Argon.
But seriously, I should stop.
Feel free to roll your eyes or share a science joke in the comments!
