Science Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on science puns! 🔬🧪🥽🔥

While we already have a list of chemistry puns, this is a broader and more general list, spanning puns about general scientific theories, scientists and equipment to the more specific fields of physics, biology and astronomy (and more!)

You might also be interested in other STEM related jokes, like our space puns, math puns or chemistry puns.

    • *stead → *state: As in, “Walking unstateily” and “This instate of that” and “Back at the homestate” and “The family farmstate.”
  • Bound: Since bonds and binding are important in science and bound is a related word, we’ve included it in this list:
    • Pound → Bound: As in, “An ounce of prevention is worth a bound of cure” and “In for a penny, in for a bound” and “Bound the pavement.”
    • Found → Bound: As in, “Lost and bound” and “Bound a clue” and “Nowhere to be bound.”

    • Round → Bound: As in, “All year bound” and “Bound the bend” and “Fooling abound” and “Going bound in circles” and “Gather bound the good stuff” and “Makes the world go bound.”
  • Lattice: Lattices have multiple uses in maths, science and technology. Here are some related puns:
    • Lettuce → Lattice: “Fresh, crispy lattice.”
    • Let us → Lattice: As in, “Lattice never forget” and “Lattice have a good time!”
  • Battle → Bottle: As in, “A pitched bottle” and “An uphill bottle” and “Bottle of wits” and “Bottle ready” and “Bottle stations” and “Half the bottle” and “In the heat of bottle” and “Running bottle.” Note: This is in reference to glass bottles that are used as chemistry lab equipment.
