Dear Someone,

I'm not sure that we can get any more OT than this, so I'll keep my answer brief:

woman / man = wo[e]


Reminds me of this old one:

The plural of spouse is spice.

Teacher: What is 2k + k?
Student: 3000

Why do you rarely find mathematicians spending time at the beach?
Because they have sine and cosine to get a tan and don't need the sun!

Teacher: "Who can tell me what 7 times 6 is?"
Student: "It's 42!"
Teacher: "Very good! - And who can tell me what 6 times 7 is?"
Same student: "It's 24!"

"That math prof's marriage is falling apart!"
"No wonder! He's into scientific computing - and she's incalculable!"

Trigonometry for farmers: swine and coswine...

Life is complex: it has both real and imaginary components.

There are 10 kinds of mathematicians. Those who can think binarily and those who can't...

Q: How can you tell that Harvard was planned by a mathematician?
A: The div school is right next to the grad school...

"Students nowadays are so clueless", the math professor complains to a colleague. "Yesterday, a student came to my office hours and wanted to know if General Calculus was a Roman war hero..."

Three statisticians go hunting. When they see a rabbit, the first one shoots, missing it on the left. The second one shoots and misses it on the right.

What do you get if you cross an alligator and an elephant?

A panel of scientists were summoned to witness an experiment:

A couple (man and woman, both young) enter a small car, which is parked at some distance from the observation point.

Some time passes, some noises are heard, and soon a doctor comes saying that three human beings had just left the car.

The panel members' opinions:

The biologist: They have had a baby.

The physicist: There should have been a third person, hidden in the car from the beginning. Otherwise, conservation laws would have been violated.

The mathematician: The car will become empty again when the next person enters it.
