The collision of Einstein and the Smarty Pants gang – SCN Encourager

By Tom Page, SCN Founder | Knucklehead Moments (The Real Tom)

It’s been happening on Twitter for the last couple of days.

Why I thought so many of the tweets in this particular feed were funny, I can’t say.


But at any rate, I was reminded about the draw of an engaging hashtag.


How can we trust atoms if they make up everything?

Did you watch those Einstein Baby videos when you were young?

Is there such a thing as a fake theory?

Did you split checks, too?

If E=mc squared, then what is X?

What can I do about all this gravity that’s weighing me down?

Why did you start a bagel shop?

What years were you president?

Do you find that entropy ain’t what it used to be?

Which shoe do YOU put on first?

Is the Frosty at Wendy’s a liquid or a solid?

Have you met Elvis?

Why is the word Abbreviation so long?

What’s Love Got to Do with it?

Quick, my kid needs a science project for tomorrow – any ideas?

Did your parents name you Einstein because you’re so smart?

Are the drink specials the same at all Applebee’s, or does it depend on the location?

Why do people listen to country music?

Are you smarter than a 5th grader?

Do pineapples really belong on pizza?

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

And like the dolt I am, I couldn’t resist submitting a question of my own.

Mr. Einstein, which is it? Is all that dumb stuff online drawn to me… or am I drawn to it?

About the Author

Prior to launching SCN I was the communications director for Holland Public Schools in Holland, Michigan for 20 years. The challenges for in-the-trenches school communicators are many – and if I can help you in any way, give me a call. I'm a former teacher and I've managed more than 100 election campaigns of all types and sizes over the years. (I was even featured in the Wall Street Journal... a very, very slow news day, no doubt!) I created the School Communicators Network because I believe the noble purpose of education deserves the best marketing and PR possible. And there's a lot of talent and expertise we can tap into! I'm also convinced we can support each other while remaining human and having fun, too. You can reach me at
