I got a funny book for a gift called Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar…: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes. I couldn’t stop reading it. This book is an overview, and thus not very deep, but I enjoyed being reminded of philosophical concepts I’ve long since forgotten. Besides, I collect math jokes and many philosophical jokes qualify as mathy ones.
For example, self-referencing jokes:
Relativity — this term means different things to different people.
I especially liked jokes related to logic:
If a man tries to fail and succeeds, which did he do?
I knew most of the jokes, but here’s a math joke I never heard before:
Salesman: “Ma’am, this vacuum cleaner will cut your work in half.”
Customer: “Terrific! Give me two of them.”
