“August is just gold wind”

"August” is not “Au” (the chemical symbol of gold) and “gust” (wind), but there are “gold(en) wind” jokes.

“The most millionaires are made in the month of August, due to the month’s name literally meaning ‘gold wind’” was posted on Twitter by BryOpeningFacts on March 25, 2015.  “August is just gold wind” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on July 7, 2021.

Replying to @Ashen_Jedi
Gold on periodic table = au, wind = gust
goldwind = august
later realized the happy coincidence of Jojo’s part 5 Vento Aureo = Golden Wind
(This is a reference to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind, an anime television series.—ed.)

August is a reference to Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure because Au is the chemical symbol for gold and gust is when wind blows so August = golden wind thanks for coming to my Ted Talk

I didn’t get it until I read your comment and knew that it was a chemistry joke. For anyone else: AU is the chemical symbol for gold. Gust as in a gust of wind
