“It’s only physics if it’s from the Physique region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling math”

"Champagne” is sometimes used as a generic term for sparkling wine, but legally, it must come from the Champagne wine region of France. A joke was posted on Twitter by Anna Hughes on June 22, 2019:

“It’s only physics if it’s from the Physique region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling math.”

Similar jokes using this meme include “It’s only moaning if it’s from the Moan region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine,” “It’s only poetry if it’s from the Poet region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine,” “It’s only Quarantine if it’s in the Quarante province of France. Otherwise it’s just Sparkling Isolation”and “It’s only sour grapes if it comes from the Sourgrape region of France.  Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine.”

Physics should only be called physics if it’s from the Physique region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling math…

Sorry “physics” students, but unless it came from the Physique region of France, it’s just sparkling math.
