    H2O = water
    H2O2 = hydrogen peroxide (i.e. bleach)

    The cat is using the chemical symbol for Sodium (Na) as a colloquial expression of No. This grammatical pun is the source of the humour. Also the cat is wearing glasses and this enhances the comedic effect.

    Oh wait, "I don't get it" was to a differing image, my mistake. Still the explanation is valid, and may assist others in understanding that particular image :p

    The phrase 'H2O too' sounds like 'H2O2'; H2O is water, H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide.

    This is an old one, but since noone has posted it....

    A colleague of Neils Bohr went to visit him in his office, and when he arrived he saw a large horseshoe hanging on the wall.
    Surprised, he said to Bohr "I notice you have a horseshoe hanging on the wall. Surely a great scientist such as yourself doesn't believe in such superstitious nonsense that it brings luck"
    Bohr replied "Of course I dont. However I have it on good authority that it works whether you believe in it or not"

    Two is not equal to three; not even for very large values of two (Grabel's Law).
