Composer Puns   Leave a comment

  1. The space aliens who met Richard Strauss said, “Take me to your lieder.”
  2. Georges was not too Bizet to compose music.
  3. Music is Lisztless without Franz.
  4. A composer opens a small door with a minor key.
  5. The composer, who attended frequent staff meetings, took a measured approach to writing music.  I hope he was never in much treble.  If so, this would have been a major concern for him, for he might have been unduly notorious.
  6. Don’t be notorious.  Compose yourself and perform in the correct key.  This is a major issue, off the scale.
  7. I suppose that Beethoven wrote some drafts of compositions in notebooks.
  8. When Johann Sebastian attended a party, was it a Bachanalia?  Am I wining too much?  Is this a grape joke or not?
  9. Puns about Johann Sebastian Bach must Germanate.

Chemistry Puns   Leave a comment

  1. The political chemist was a free radical.
  2. A few weeks ago, a friend handed me a folded sheet of paper.  The outside read, “Are jokes about sodium funny?”  I opened the paper to read the answer, “Na.”  It was an elemental joke, one which a person might tell periodically.  The joke has the benefit of being not quite salty.  And, if one dislikes the joke, one can table it.
