You do know this isn't funny at all, right?
Mathematicians often have wacky senses of humor. Like the pair watching an empty house when someone walked up, entered, and left a few minutes later with someone from inside the house. One mathematician looked at the other and said, "Now, if someone just goes back in, that house will be empty again."
Mathematicians still make better biologists than particle physicists
At least that guy is studying the guts of an actual frog, not a theoretical one.
Equal time for Yellow Pigs! Especially on July 17!
Haha, this is great. Anyone who has ever proved anything would understand exactly what he's getting at. Nicely done ;)
