Mole Day Jokes and Humor

Chemistry Cat meme about moles.

Mole Day is October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m. in honor of Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 1023). A mole is a unit of measurement used when existing measurements are inadequate, and its particle measurement is based on Avogadro's number. Like Pi Day, which is celebrated on March 14 because it mirrors pi (3.14), Mole Day is celebrated on either October 23 or June 2, because those dates are similar to Avogadro's number. What better way to celebrate a holiday born out of chemistry humor than with jokes?

Mole Day Pledge No. 1

I pledge allegiance to the mole, and to the science from which it comes, one SI unit, extremely divisible, with micromoles and millimoles for all.

R. Thomas Myers, Kent State University, Kent, Ohio

Mole Day Pledge No. 2

I pledge allegiance to the mole, to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, and to the atomic mass for which it stands, one number, most divisible, with atoms and molecules for all.
