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.

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 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!
