Overheard in the greenhouse: "I'm so glad my husband's pollen tube isn't unicellular."
When Mr. Leno of the Tonight Show went J-walking and asked pedestrians some science questions, he discovered some amazing new facts about the universe:
Jay Leno: "Why does dew appear on plants in the morning when the Sun comes up?" A waitress: "Is it because the Sun makes them perspire?"
Jay Leno: "Why does the Moon orbit the Earth?" An auto mechanic: "To get to the other side?"
Jay Leno: What are magnets?" A taxi driver: "Are they the things crawling over a week-old dead cat?"
Jay Leno: Which is more useful, the Sun or the Moon?" A thirteen-year old: [Pause] "I think it's the Moon because the moon shines at night when you want the light, whereas the Sun shines during the day when you don't need it."
This sounds like someone that needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

Definition: a nun who's had a sex change.
The Official Unabashed Scientific Dictionary defines black holes as what you get in black socks.
Maybe it just needs to be explained in the appropriate context:
When pollen lands on the stigma of a flower, a chemical signal is sent from the stigma to the pollen which initiates pollen tube growth. A single cell expands the length of the stigma to fertilize an ovary. Double-fertilization occurs, in which two cells are fertilized within the plant. These develop into the embryo and endosperm.
Human fertilization is a little different. I'm sure you're familiar with the male equivalent for a pollen tube, and you can fathom how unrewarding it would be, were it unicellular.

he claims he can't be executed twice for the same crime and he is set free too.
They grab the engineer and shove his head into the guillotine.
He looks up at the release mechanism and says, "Wait a minute, I see your problem....."
