A good bit of this made me laugh.

I'd agree, some of those are funny. I most of all like the ones involving the fence and the cannibals.

Always good stuff. Deja vu, though.

There's the black sheep joke! Yay! I'm not the only one who's ever heard of it!

Nor were you a month ago. I've seen most of these before. I suspect they've been posted somewhere on the Zoo.

Those made me chuckle, I must admit.

Nerd joke alert! What do you get when you cross an elephant and a grape?

Squashed grapes, I'll wager. :) Or squashed elephants if the grapes are big enough.

Elephant grape sin(Θ)

But what do you get when you cross a mosquito with a mountain climber?

Nothing. You can't cross a vector with a scaler.

Thanks to Chalain for telling me that joke a couple months ago before I had to admit that this forum might've actually had some humor I hadn't seen

A man met his mathematician friend on the train one day, and asked where he was headed.

"Across the country," said the mathematician.

"...why don't you take a plane then?" The man was puzzled. It is a long way across the country.

"I calculated the odds of there being a bomb on the plane, and they're too high for me. So I don't fly any more."

The man shrugged, and went on to talk about other things.

A few months later, the man was in the airport, and there was the mathematician.

"I thought you didn't fly any more."

"I didn't, until I calculated the odds of there being two bombs on the plane."


"And now, I carry my own bomb."

A coin is tossed 10 times, and comes up heads every time. An economist, a mathematician and an engineer are all asked what the next toss will yield:

Economist: Tails. It's got to balance out sometime, right?

Mathematician: Impossible to tell. Each toss is an independent event.

Engineer: Heads. I mean, come on! It's obviously a trick coin!

Albert Einstein dies and goes to heaven. Due to an unfortunate but temporary shortage in available housing, he is assigned to a dormitory. When he arrives at his room, he finds his four roommates anxiously awaiting. They are all eager to impress Einstein.

"My IQ is 150," boasts the first.
"Excellent," replies Einstein, "we shall be able to discuss my most recent thoughts on unified field theory."

"And my IQ is 125," adds the second.
Einstein is pleased. "Splendid. We must arrange a time to discuss advances in mathematics."

"My IQ is 100," says the third.
"That's wonderful," enthuses Einstein. "We can talk about new directions in the arts."

Finally it is time for the last roommate. "My IQ is 75," he offers.
Einstein places his hand on his chin and thinks a moment. He then asks the man, very slowly, "so, which way do you think interest rates are headed?"
