It's Thursday afternoon and I'm feeling a bit silly, so I'm putting out a call for everyone to share their favorite groan-inducing, head-slapping, pun-laden science and math jokes. Here's a couple to start us out:

I can't remember where I heard this joke, but as the wife of an engineer, it amuses me.
Three men—a mathematician, a biologist, and an engineer—are discussing their love lives. The mathematician starts off talking about how much he loves having a wife. She takes care of him. She always there for him. She's so constant, just everything he could want.
