A scientist walks into a bar....

Update 13/11/2010
And the winner is.... Eukaryote for this beauty:

Man walks into a pharmacy and says "how much is your adenosine triphosphate?" The pharmacist says "to you, it's 80p"

Boom, Boom!!
Eukaryote will get a book token for his trouble.
Thanks for all your entries.


To celebrate Science Week, I'm looking for the best short science joke. But you have just until 5pm (Irish Time) today to get your entries in.

So, this is going to be short and sweet. You can tweet your joke, remembering to use the hashtag #scijoke , and the whole joke must fit into one tweet (140 characters). You can follow me on twitter @blogscience

You can also leave your joke as a comment to this post, but you need to observe a similar maximum length.

I'll dig out a nice prize for the best joke of the day (which may also be the worst....I love terrible puns), so spread the word and get joking.

A Horse walks into a bar and the barman says "Why the long face?". "Evolutionary selective pressures" says the horse.

Apologies in advance:

Higgs boson walks into a church. Priest says:"We don’t like Bosons in here" Dismayed, the Boson says "But how can you have mass without me?"

What do you call a frog with no legs?
It doesn't matter- he won't come anyway.

God that's bad - but you need one frog related joke in there!

There are 10 kinds of people in this world.

Those who understand binary numbers...

And those who don't.

(Hm...does that 'count' as a joke?!)

Now that we're in the Euro one has to imagine that the pharmacist is in perfidious Albion, but...

A man walks into a pharmacy and says "how much is your adenosine triphosphate?" The pharmacist says "to you, it's 80p"

Eukaryote,
You might drop me an email at the address on the main page so I can sort out your prize!

Thanks
