11 High-Brow Jokes from Low-Brow Places
We may have thought these jokes were complete gibberish at the time (since their source is normally known for complete idiocy), but a deeper dive into the reference or the subject matter proved that they actually knew their stuff. What we have here is the classic lesson of “Don’t judge a book by its completely ridiculous cover.” If you want straight down the middle physics jokes, you know Futurama and The Big Bang Theory got you covered. But if you settled into a silly ol’ low brow comedy, you might’ve been a little pissy that you had to learn something for a split second.
Look, sometimes Yakko takes a break from harassing nurses to question the existence of the multiverse. And sometimes the gang looked to Joey Tribbiani for guidance. Okay, so the joke involved urine, but his science was sound! Good for them, these wiley morons. They got to flash some brains and surprise us, like a dopey cousin who all of a sudden nails a Trivial Pursuit question. But don’t worry, it didn’t take long for these 12 high-brow jokes to stray from their low-brow places.
