When it comes to things that are funny, chemistry jokes and chemistry puns aren’t always top of mind. But as it turns out, there’s a lot of dad joke material to be made from protons, electrons, and the periodic table. Chemistry may seem like a serious topic, but those who know it best have managed to make some seriously funny jokes out of it.

The genius of chemistry jokes is that they require an understanding of basic chemistry principles: Those with background chemistry knowledge will be in on the chemistry joke, and those who lack an understanding have reason to learn to roll with the chemistry puns. That vaguely aspirational quality makes them the perfect learning tool — and good, wholesome fun in the dad joke tradition. These funny chemistry jokes will definitely get — wait for it — a reaction.
