The thread was started off with a favorite from Popular Science.

Science and math Jokes might seem kind of lame, but they're a great way to liven up a lesson.
Students are much more likely to engage in the lesson and remember it if they're having a good time.
They are also an excellent way to get a good laugh or groan out of your friends when you need to improve the mood.
