Who Says Learning Can’t Be Funny? (28 Textbook Jokes)

Education is a tough racket. For one, the government comes around every once in a while and tells you how and what to teach. Then, they take money away from libraries. Also, the jokes in textbooks, by and large, are not funny. On top of all that, kids are pretty distractable and don’t love reading per se.

Fortunately, there are stellar writers putting together textbooks as we speak. Thankfully, the good people of Reddit who actually do their homework caught all the funny textbook jokes the world has to offer.


Honestly, I miss school. Mostly, I miss when reading was my “job.” I’d miss it even more if I could have read one or two jokes in a Physics book. I’d probably understand Physics too. Actually, it seems like the end goal for understanding physics is hitting a wall where you can’t explain why any of it’s happening. Thanks a lot, Einstein!

Yeah. Albert Einstein doesn’t get enough shit for confusing us all. Or for helping us make those bombs. Well, one of the jokes below explains what he gave us. Enjoy!
