So what are science jokes?
We’ve put together a list of 50 of them, with links to each one, to give you a quick, fun peek at some of the most popular ones.

The Top 50 science jokes (and the 10 funniest) Science jokes tend to have the word ‘science’ in the title, because it means the subject of the joke is a scientist.

Here’s a quick guide to some of our favourites.
“It’s a good time to kill a dragon”.
A classic Science joke, this one is a nod to a famous science experiment which took place in 1932.
The dragon was captured on film, and scientists tested whether the image of the dragon could be reproduced, as it would look different if it was in the wild.

“God is dead”.

The phrase ‘God is Dead’ is often used as a catchphrase for scientists, as the phrase is sometimes associated with an “atheist” or “non-believer” group.
“A dog’s breakfast”.
The phrase, popularised by US comedian Jerry Seinfeld, means that there is nothing in the universe that can cause a dog to eat a piece of toast.
