Poem by a student

I recently heard a poem by a student

"I dig, you dig, he digs, she digs, they dig, we dig."

If you don't understand it, it's ok, it's very ....DEEP.

You must be a stick in the mud not to like that joke.

Re: Poem by a student

Those side conversations just muddy everything up.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Your concerns are groundless. If you dig deeper you will both unearth the solution.

When I first heard that joke, I just couldn't help myself. My laughter was of seismic proportions.

Re: Poem by a student

Hi GreatSandy

It's a pun on the word "deep". It can be used to mean that it's very philosophical, but also to refer to "deep" as in "deep under the earth".

You can see the rest of us followed by even more puns with words related to dirt and mud.

Yes but people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
