“My chemistry teacher offered me a Pb and J sandwich. Hospital bill is pretty high”

A peanut butter and jelly sandwich (PB&J) is popular in the United States. However, “Pb” is the chemical symbol for lead. “J” is an old symbol for iodine.

Wikipedia: Peanut butter and jelly sandwich
A peanut butter and jelly sandwich (PB&J) consists of peanut butter and fruit preserves — jelly — spread on bread. The sandwich may be open-faced, made of a single slice of bread folded over, or made between two slices of bread.

If the element Pb is Lead, does that make a Pb and J sandwich lethal?

never ask a scientist to make you a pb and j sandwich. while us common folk understand it as an abbreviation for peanut butter and jelly, the scientist, incapable of comprehending peasant speak, will instead give you lead (Pb)

J is the old symbol for iodine. So when he said “I’m going to have a Pb and J”, your mistake was answering “I’ll have a PbJ2”.

Pb = lead
