April Fool's Day Means It's Time For Some Chemistry Jokes. Just Don't Expect Much Of A Reaction (VIDEO)

Just in time for April Fool's Day, the American Chemical Society has released a new video featuring its favorite chemistry jokes. A few might evoke a mild HeHe (get it?), but none is likely to yield a true laugh reaction. You might say they're chemically comically inert.

The video leads off with this joule jewel:

I don't want to seem like I have this thing where, you know, certain elements can only be with other ones or whatever, but whenever I see copper [chemical symbol Cu] and tellurium [Te] together, they're just cute.

CuTe. Get it?

Hey, cut the chemists some slack. When it comes to humor, they're clearly out of their element.
