Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking was one of the greatest and most intelligent people that ever lived, and as everyone mourns the loss of this incredible scientist, it's time to remember not only his scientific achievements but his humor and the best jokes that come along with it.

In the documentary 'Stephen Hawking: A Brief History of Mine' the scientist stated that smart jokes would always have a significant role in his life. This mindset helped him overcome the struggles he faced when he was diagnosed with degenerative motor neuron disease in 1963.

Hawking passed away on March 14th, and the media was flooded with tributes to the honorary scientist. "The Simpsons" executive producer-writer Al Jean went on social media to post his thoughts saying, “A sense of humor as vast as the universe,” touching on the lighthearted way the physicist was able to see the world.

Stephen Hawking quotes are usually quite deep, investigating the meaning of life, the Universe and motivations to live. His funny jokes touch the same subjects but in such a manner that even the most prominent skeptic gives in to a laugh.

Scroll down through our Stephen Hawking joke list, that made us laugh throughout his incredible life and after..

I loved this episode! Until this scene, I wasn't sure if he was actually going to make an appearance or if it would be a behind-closed-door thing.
