We all know that Zach is a Ferret,
He's so much smarter than a pellet (?)
But show him bad spelling

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Re: Limericks

There once was a person called Mathsy
Who didn't like Sciency
He called for a fight
And he was right
He won the fight with Sciency

Re: Limericks

there once was a man  from china,
he was a very good climber,
he slipt on a rock and lost,
his sock
that was the end of the poor climber!

Re: Limericks

A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,
plus three times the square root of four,
divided by seven,
plus five times eleven,
equals nine squared and not a bit more.


A graduate student from Trinity
Computed the cube of infinity;
But it gave him the fidgets
To write down all those digits,
So he dropped math and took up divinity.


There once was a number named pi
Who frequently liked to get high.
All he did every day
Was sit in his room and play
With his imaginary friend named i.


There once was a log named Lynn
Whose life was devoted to sin.
She came from a tree
Whose base was shaped like an e.
She's the most natural log I've seen.

A challenge for many long ages
Had baffled the savants and sages.
Yet at last came the light:
Seems old Fermat was right--
To the margin add 200 pages.


Integral z-squared dz
from 1 to the cube root of 3
times the cosine
of three pi over 9
equals log of the cube root of 'e'.

Re: Limericks

No, I got them from elsewhere...and I enjoyed reading them, so I wanted to share with you all smile
Here are two more.......

If inside a circle a line
Hits the center and goes spine to spine
And the line's length is "d"
the circumference will be
d times 3.14159

If (1+x) (real close to 1)
Is raised to the power of 1
Over x, you will find
Here's the value defined:
2.718281...
