Wednesday's Words - A science lesson?

Okay - I really can identify with some of these - science was not my best subject!

The following are all quotes from 11 year-olds' science exams:

"When you breathe, you inspire. When you do not breathe, you expire."

"H20 is hot water, and CO2 is cold water."

"To collect fumes of sulphur, hold down a deacon over a flame in test tube"

"When you smell an odourless gas, it is probably carbon monoxide"

"Three kinds of blood vessels are arteries, vanes, and caterpillars."

"The moon is a planet just like the earth, only it is even deader "

"Dew is formed on leaves when the sun shines down on them and makes them perspire."

"A super-saturated solution is one that holds more than it can hold."

"The body consists of three parts - the brainium, the borax and the abominable cavity. The brainium contains the brain, the borax contains the heart and lungs, and the abominable cavity contains the bowels, of which there are five - a, e, I, o and u."

"Momentum: What you give a person when they are going away."

"Rhubarb: a kind of celery gone bloodshot."

"For head cold: use an agonizer to spray the nose until it drops in your throat."

"To keep milk from turning sour: keep it in the cow."

"The pistol of a flower is its only protection against insects."

"The skeleton is what is left after the insides have been taken out and the outsides have been taken off. The purpose of the skeleton is something to hitch meat to."

"A permanent set of teeth consists of eight canines, eight cuspids, two molars,and eight cuspidors."

"The tides are a fight between the Earth and Moon. All water tends towards the moon, because there is no water in the moon, and nature abhors a vacuum. I forget where the sun joins in this fight."

"A fossil is an extinct animal. The older it is, the more extinct it is."

"Equator: A managerie lion running around the Earth through Africa."

"Liter: A nest of young puppies."

*Thanks to Pastor Tim for this joke!

Hope you enjoyed your laugh, today!  Tomorrow I will have lots to share with you about my posts Calling all Creative People and Calling all Creative People, page two ~ be sure to stop by and comment! 
PS  The artwork is called "Imagination Baby" ~ just imagine what a baby dinosaur would look like with feathers...  Well, I told you science wasn't my strong subject!  *laughs*


  1. How funny some of these are. I really like the rhubarb definition.

  2. Glad you liked them - they really made me laugh! Just had to share ;-)

  3. I bet the teacher got a good laugh out of these too :)
