We may not remember every chemistry lecture from high school, but we could never erase the memory of our 10th grade chemistry teachers dancing around the classroom in a frenetic “Mole Day Dance.”
What’s Mole Day? Every October 23rd, we celebrate the “mole.” Not the furry creature, but the term an Italian scientist named Amedeo Avogadro coined in 1811. The mole, sometimes called Avogadro’s Number, is a unit of measurement used in chemistry.
To celebrate, we put together a selection of mole jokes. It’s brightened our day, and kept (most of us) from breaking out in embarrassing dances.
Q: What did Avogadro teach his students in math class?
Q: What kind of fruit did Avogadro eat in the summer?
Q: Why was there only one Avogadro?
A: When they made him, they broke the Moled
Q: What kept Avogadro in bed for two months?
Q: What line from Shakespeare do high school moles have to memorize?

Q: What did Avogadro invent for his wife to use as a night cream?
A: Oil of Molay
Q: How much does Avogadro exaggerate?
A: He makes mountains out of mole hills
Q: What element do moles love to study in chemistry?
