Monday Morning bug jokes

The folks at the Entomological Society were busy at our last annual meeting, and recorded a whole bunch of entomologists telling jokes!

There is a wonderful follow up video with interviews with some of my favorite funny entomologists–Dennis Kopp and Tom Turpin. Jay McPhersen has amazing untapped talent as a straight man, and apparently no entomologists have ever changed a lightbulb.

  1. Oh man. The carabid one was good, it was all downhill from there!

    Similar jokes at ento meetups in Australia, but I can never remember them, just feel the same amount of “groan”!

  2. A biology student conducted an experiment to discover what would happen to a grasshopper if its legs were removed.

    He pulled off one of its legs and yelled “hop!”, and the grasshopper hopped.

    The student took another leg and yelled “hop!” and the grasshopper hopped.

    Then he removed all the remaining legs and yelled “hop!” but the grasshopper did not hop.

    The student yelled again, but the grasshopper did not hop.

    Being a biology student, he concluded that when all the legs of a grasshopper are removed it will become deaf.

  3. Q. What did one scorpionfly say to the other scorpionfly? A. Why the long face?

    Q. How do you tell a mutillid from a formicid? A. Ask the “truant” officer.

    But seriously, folks, I’ll be here all week….:-)

  6. So a guy called the police about a bees nest. They had to send in the whole SWAT team. Never the less, it turned into a big STING operation, and at that point they had to call in the BALM squad.
