Video: Cringe-Worthy Chemistry Jokes Abound

Cue the rimshots. American Chemical Society’s Reactions video packs a bunch of roll-your-eyes type jokes in to a short space. If you’ve got kids, grandkids or nieces and nephews, this is the perfect material to make them giggle – after you explain the science behind why it’s supposed to be funny. And if you are a bit punchy after a long day at the office, these jokes will come in handy to lighten the mood. I will admit, I laughed at more than one of these.
