Open thread for science and math jokes!


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:

From The Republic of Math on Twitter

Q: Why couldn't Pythagoras get a car loan?

A: He couldn't find anyone to cosine!

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.

But the biologist disagrees. "What you really need is a mistress," he says. "My wife is boring, but my mistress always makes sure there's something new and exciting going on."

Those two argue back and forth for a little while until, finally, they ask the engineer to break the tie. Which is better, a wife, or a mistress?

"I like having both," says the engineer. "That way, one of them always assumes I'm off spending time with the other one, and I can go into the office and get some work done."

Your turn!
