Boingboing is having an open thread for science jokes, and there are some awesome groaners already:
A malacologist was chilling at home drinking a beer and watching Adventure Time. There was a knock at his door & he irritatedly stood to answer it.
On his porch was a haplotrema vancouverense. "Can I borrow your phone?" Piped up the snail.
"Fuck no." Said the scientist, kicking the snail off his porch.
TWO YEARS later the scientist was at home chilling out, drinking a beer and watching Regular Show. There was a knock at his door.
It was the very same haplotrema."What the fuck was that about?"
