Neil deGrasse Tyson isn’t a comedian, but he does have a good funny bone as he proves to us on twitter time and time again:
“According to the song, Rudolph’s nose is shiny, which means it reflects rather than emits light. Useless for navigating fog.”
“Apollo in 1969. Shuttle in 1981. Nothing in 2011. Our space program would look awesome to anyone living backwards thru time.”
“Anyone from Venus is formally a Venereal, but Doctors got to the word before astrophysicists, so we invented Venutian instead”
“No need to ask me where I looked up these numbers – I didn’t. I calculated them myself. It’s called the “Brain App” “
“In 5-billion years the Sun will expand & engulf our orbit as the charred ember that was once Earth vaporizes. Have a nice day”
I like the sarcastic ones. He also usually makes people laugh while he’s on someone’s show. Here he is on conan awhile back.
Here is a great “interview” with Jimmy Fallon (better picture).
Here’s another little funny haha
He is also one of the most meme worthy characters in the culture of the world wide web!
Classic! I encourage everyone to watch every video that Neil deGrasse Tyson was ever in ever. You will not be dissapointed.
