Collected by our brilliant panel, chaired by Ray D A Shone.
Our punishingly powerful page aims to brighten a new generation by shining a light on the current state of solar. How? First, we pylon the puns directly. Then we modulate and invert them alternately. That’s watt we do. This stellar page connects a full spectrum of so-called humour, reflecting tastelessly on a bubbling new dawn in solar energy.
Focussing on solar thermal, we admit we are not tapping bright minds, instead we are plumbing new depths and going right to the (trip) wire in our search for groans. Selectively and fluidly. Nevertheless, one can see from every rooftop that this is a hot topic, and not one to rail or blow a fuse about, but, as with PV, a parallel topic to switch to, as the coating of your eyes glazes over.
Energised by this electrifying introduction? illuminated by a new sunny outlook? Hot with ideas? Feeling sparked to wire us your star solar joke? Burning to charge us with joke-plagiarism? To dump us in hot water, to string us up? No pressure. Transmit to us your transformational radiance: we might even plug it. Series. But more likely we will resist and make light of it. Just like the nuclear physicist who, instead of going to meter, went fission.
Q – Why did we never get to see the first ice cream land on the sun?
A – It arrived at night.
Another about time…
Q – Why is the idea that you can tell the time by looking at the sun just a load of nonsense.
A – Have you really managed to make out the numbers?
Time for a blonde joke…
Q – Did you hear about the blonde who stayed up all night to see where the sun went?
A – It finally dawned on him…
Another intellectual joke…
Q – What do you do if you find a green monster?
A – Put it in the sun until it ripens.
Another energy pun
Q – Wind turbines?
A – I’m a big fan.
Back to awful puns…
Q – What do you call a silly old man?
A – Fossil fool.
But seriously though…
A new U.N. report says the global warming outlook is much worse than originally predicted. This is starting to get serious, because originally they predicted it would destroy the planet.
