Every one of us is most comfortable when we are in our element.

Elements combine among themselves and form numerous compounds, which then again react with one other to form other new combinations, and the process repeats itself. The total number of elements in the periodic table is one hundred and eighteen, but we are sure that the number of chemistry jokes and element jokes surely exceeds that number.

All the elements that have been discovered are represented in the periodic table. According to their characteristics, they are classified as metals, non-metals, alkali metals, halogens, radioactive elements, etc. Each element is different from one another, yet they often depict similar characteristics, and that is the beauty of chemistry. You never know who will react with whom.

Similarly, element jokes can be used for every situation in life. These element jokes and puns are closely related to the like of chemistry puns and chemistry jokes. Let's wear our lab aprons, safety goggles, and witness some lovely reactions when elements pun amongst themselves!

If you like these puns you may also like robot puns or, for something different, birthday puns, right here on Kidadl.

Best Puns On Elements
