Re: Weird Words Wired

There were two cats, 1 2 3 cat and un deux trois cat. They had a swimming race from England to France. Who won?
1 2 3 cat, because Un deux trois quatre cinq.

Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9.

Re: Weird Words Wired

Well, "un deux trois quatre cinq" is French for "one two three four five", but "quatre cinq" is read almost like "cat sank".

Re: Weird Words Wired

A small arthropod flew in and sat on a dog.

Dog: Are you a mite?
Arthropod: No, but I mite be.
Dog: That is one of the worst puns I've ever heard.
Arthropod: I made it up on the fly.

Re: Weird Words Wired

That was mitey funny!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
