A few years ago, we took the kids to the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh. We had stopped down by the cafeteria where they were remodeling and they had a bunch of great science jokes and puns written on the drywall where they were remodeling.
I forgot I had even taken pictures of these – they were taken on January 19, 2017.
The Ferrous Wheel
Ferrous Wheel is a play on the words Ferris Wheel, the carnival ride.
Don’t Trust Atoms – They Make Up Everything!
This diagram would make for a fabulous coffee mug.
Fleas Can Accelerate Faster Than a Space Shuttle
That’s mildly terrifying.
Potato Facts: Have You Tried the Fries?
Since the area that was being remodeled was down in the cafeteria, I thought this was a cute way to encourage people to buy french fries.
Please Pass the NaCl
Sodium Chloride is table salt, also tasty to put on french fries.
I Think I Lost an Electron But I’m Not Positive
There are probably a lot of jokes you could come up with positive/negative electrons.
The Name’s Bond, Hydrogen Bond
There were a couple of great chemistry jokes related to movies.
Snakes on a Plane
Sadly this photo is a bit blurry, but it’s still better than the movie.
Learning Two Languages at Once
This one cracks me up because as a web developer it’s so relatable. I couldn’t find @gevrekked anywhere online, so I wish I could source them for the quote properly! If you know who this is please let me know in the comments below – this is another great one I’d love to see on a coffee mug.
Anyways, these pictures were great + a lot of fun. I’m glad I took pictures of them and I’m even happier that BestofStupid.com is back to being my online home of all the funny stuff I find in our travels.
Got any good science jokes to share? I’d love to hear them in the comments section below!
