“Why doesn’t the sun go to college?"/"Because it has a million degrees.”

A pun about “degrees” is:

Q: Why doesn’t the sun go to college?
A: Because it has a million degrees.


The riddle was posted on Twitter on August 29, 2009.

“My college graduation was in an arena, and it was hot in there, like 5,000 degrees” is another joke about college “degrees.”
