Bad guys are obnoxious.

Yeah. Isn't it great?

But if there were no bad guys in the cartoons, there would be no one to beat. That's a little pointless.

A scientist was carrying out an experiment on electricity. Suddenly his apparatus blew up. When he realized what had gone wrong, he was horrified at what he had accidentally done. He couldn't believe he had just touched the anode of his electrolytic cell.

He was positively shocked.

Mathematicians have their own diet plan: **binomial ........ trinomial **

Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional).

LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make.

Hi Agnishom;

The Everyday Math one is really good.

To be honest,

I dont understand that one at all.

My friends blame me for not understanding Jokes

Hi Agnishom;

You have a fine sense of humor though. You remind me of my mother, she would have said that too.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Hi all!

Jerry was atop a two-story building with a really large pot perched on the edge of the roof. There was

a ramp from the pot to the ground (a very steep ramp: slope > 10). Tom was setting on the ground

at the end of the ramp. Jerry pushed the pot off onto the ramp. Poor Tom! That was a real "High

Pot in Use!"

is Tom

is Jerry

A man rode with his friends each day passing through a long tunnel. Each time they exited the tunnel

he found himself dizzy and disoriented. So he wen to the doctor and had numerous (and quite expensive I imagine) tests run. A few days later he went to see the doctor to find out the results. The doctor paused, rubbing his chin, and then delivered his analysis. "You've obviously have a bad case of "carpool tunnel syndrome."

The coroner had a particularly difficult time determining the cause for the sudden death of the hog

A Pole comes into a Warsaw bank.

'I have a hundred zlotys,' says the Pole. 'I can't decide what would be the safest thing to do with them.'

'Put them in the bank,' says the bank clerk.

'But what if the bank crashes?' says the Pole.

'If the bank crashes, then the bank administration guarantees to refund your money,' replies the clerk.

'Well, what if the administration goes bust?'

'Then the Polish Ministry of Finance guarantees to refold your money.'

'Well, what if the Ministry of Finance goes bust?'

'Then the Polish government guarantees to refund your money.'

'Well, what if the Polish government goes bankrupt?'

'Well, in that case the friendly Soviet Union guarantees the return of your money.'

'And what if the Soviet Union goes bankrupt?'

'You naughty, you don't mean to say that you'd begrudge a hundred zlotys for that?'
