Two rabb's were talking.

"I hear you're doing work looking for the meaning of life in mathematical formulas. How is it going"

"I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that we found the meaning of life. It can be found in PI.

"That's great! What's the bad news."

"It's written in Hebrew."

Huh?

The first time I heard it someone had to explain it to me. The second time I heard it I pretended I got it. Smile

Sounds like biased joke to me.

It's a bigoted Irish joke!

Nope - it's not bigoted or biased joke in anyway. Although, until it was explained to me, I thought so too!

It's a little like the aristocrats for nerds! People tell the joke just to show they are in on it...even if it's not funny!

A pocket protector for the first person to get it!

Don't get it. Isn't there something about Pi being 3 in Hebrew according to something they built in the old testament?

Anyhow,here are some of my favourite nerdy smartarse gags:

A Roman centurion walks into a bar and says
"I'll have a martinum"
Barman says " Don't you mean a martini"
Soldier says "If I'd wanted a double I'd have asked for one"

Two atoms are walking down the street when one of the stops and checks his pockets.
"man, I think I've lost an electron"
"Are you sure?"
"Yes, I'm positive"

According to Einstein, what's comes between fear and sex?

Funf!!!

Well that sucks. I hate the Irish. I'm Irish, I have just cause.

Hebrew is written backwards, and Pi has an infinite number of digits. Is that what it's about?

However, you're right, it doesn't make sense, all of Pi can't be written down no matter what direction someone writes the digits. So, the joke isn't funny, it's just weird.

Not everybody gets the following joke, but I like it. I can't remember the source, I've known it for many years.


Rene Descartes walks into a bar.
The bartender says, "Do you want a beer?"
Rene replys, "I think not" and he disappears in a puff of smoke!
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

Congratulations Bill! First person to get the joke! The fact it doesn't make sense IS the joke. The rabbis can never find the meaning of life because they can never find the right hand side of PI to start from.


Your karma ran over my dogma.

Cheers, Bill. I did know it had an umlaut but have no idea how to write one in here. I can't put the acute accent in Café, either. I have asked on occasion to no avail.

I assume, from your reaction, without the umlaut it has some other terrible meaning in German, seeing as the joke had English spellings of the other numbers and the big mistake I made was using Einstein instead of Freud who would have played a much more logical role in the gag. Care to elaborate?

George

P.S.LOL, just noticed, not only do you automatically get your accent in Café you also automatically get it an automatic capital letter. How celestial.
