Science Jokes??

We were working on the BOSU ball this morning in exercise class when our teacher showed us the "dead bug" position. In this position, you sit on the BOSU, ball side up, raise your hands and legs in the air, and engage your abs.

While engaged, I remembered my old graduate school joke
about the centimeter and the erg. It goes like this...

If this is 1 cm,

Then, what is this?

It's an Erg, a dyne-centimeter...

Why is that funny, because an erg is the amount of work done by a force of one dyne exerted for a distance of one centimeter, in other words, a dyne-centimeter. Well, maybe it's not that funny after all.

One more, and then I give the floor to a youtube professional.

What's this..

It's a ferrous wheel. Of course, if it was Fe3+, then, it would be a ferric wheel. Hah, Hah, Hah, o.k. maybe that's not so funny either.
Now check out this one on youtube, and don't give up on it too early, it gets even funnier after a few jokes....


  1. I'm not able to participate in the Bosu class yet, but I would like to be there to see YOU in this class! Please call me.:)

  2. LiMgFeAsOF!!

    Please check out our new science web comic website at its jokes are slightly more lame than this!

  3. I just checked out smileypotatoes. It is cute. I like the one where everyone is complaining that Magnesium's problem are directly related to her/him/it being so reactive. Cute.
