Science Puns for Lunch

On today’s lunch menu: Science puny goodness.

I made this:

Cooh story, bro.

And a coworker told the joke that inspired this:

I’ll send the first commenter who correctly identifies the pun being made in the image above some awesome science stickers.

    I don’t know abut #1, but #2 is a Ferrous Wheel (and it was old when I was in college).

      • Brianne Bilyeu says

        WOAH! We’ve been playing with this one in the office for a little while now, but EmbraceYourInnerCrone just beat us to it! Nicely done, both of you!

          Thank you! My daughter’s hs chem teacher used to use this sort of puzzle to help them review and I used to try to figure them out. Also I work in a path lab and we always have puzzle contests during lab week. I’m a helpdesk tech but I always love figuring them out.

  2. Brianne Bilyeu says

    Alright – I’m offering up three sets of science stickers – one to Tabby Lavalamp who first posted about the Ferris/Ferrous Wheel, and one each to Lorax and Robert B who answered at almost exactly the same time with the “Ferrous” spelling. If you would like me to send you stickers, you three can contact me at with the address to which you’d like me to send the stickers, or I’ll contact you via the email with which you commented. Thanks for playing!

    Doctor: Bad news, the test results show an extra methyl group on your left big toe.
    Patient: Is it serious? can it be removed?
    Doctor: No, I’m afraid it’s terminal.

        Close, but note that I specified the *definite* integral of 1/x from 1 to cabin. I.e. the area under 1/x from 1..cabin. No C needed.

        It’s a natural log cabin.
