Space Jokes

Here are some hot space jokes I came up with:

Q: Why does Saturn have rings?
A: Because Saturn is a man and he is about to be married to his wife and so he has a a wedding ring! (This joke is more effective if you think of Saturn as having one big ring instead of a number of rings.)

PERSON 1: Hey, did you hear they're changing the name of the space shuttle?
PERSON 2: Yes. I heard they're just calling it the shuttle. But why?
PERSON 1: Because there's almost no space left in it!
PERSON 2: Oh, you mean because it is filled with many pieces of equipment and different experiments and so there is not much space for astronauts to get around?
PERSON 1: Exactly!

Q: If you were to play checkers with Mars, which color would it pick?
A: Red, because Mars is red! (Obviously the planet Mars would not play checkers because it is way too big and also not a person, but this joke imagines that the planet IS a person, even though it's not.)

Q: A spaceship blows up in space. Where do they bury the survivers?
A: Trick question! You can't bury the survivors, because they're currently drifting in space and there is no way to rescue them. They will soon run out of oxygen and die.

Happy 4th of July

Here is a quote that has always meant a lot to me:

"In the course of human history, freedom is something that cannot be taken from liberty, for both liberty, freedom, and freedom's cousin, justice and liberty, are the glue which holds the foundation - the foundation in this case being justice, freedom, and a commitment to freedom and liberty, combined with the will to succeed in matters of justice and freedom - together with the force of a million liberties enjusticed in a liberated freedom from judgement of justice and liberty. Freedom."

--George Washington
