Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Gdel, and Noam Chomsky walk into a bar...

Heisenberg turns to the other two and says, "Clearly this is a joke, but how can we figure out if it's funny or not?"

Gödel replies, "We can't know that because we're inside the joke."

Chomsky says, "Of course it's funny. You're just telling it wrong."

1. And Mandelbrot, sitting in the back says, hide the glassware before it fractals. Again. nt

2. Good one! And another:

Heisenberg, Schrödinger and Ohm are in a car, with Heisenberg driving. They get pulled over. The cop asks Heisenberg, "Did you know you were doing 65 in a 45 zone?" Heisenberg says, "Great! Now I'm lost!" The cop thinks this is odd and orders him to pop open the trunk. Upon checking on the trunk the cop says, "Do you know you have a dead cat back here?" "We do now, asshole!" yells Schrödinger. The cop starts to arrest them. Ohm resists.

9. There are actually four physicists in that car, not three.

 

But your telling of it is correct, because Pauli has to be excluded from the joke.

3. Einstein says "there is no funny. Only more funny and less funny"

5. Einstein, Newton and Pascal play Hide-and-Seek......

Last edited Tue Jan 1, 2019, 12:40 PM - Edit history (1)

Einstein is It, so he closes his eyes and counts to 100. Pascal runs off and hides.

Newton stands on the sidewalk, and draws a square one meter on a side and stands in it. When Einstein opens his eyes, he sees Newton standing there, runs over and tags him. "You're It!" he shouts.

"No," Newton says, "you didn't find me. You found a newton over a meter squared. You found a Pascal!"

12. I can't figure this out, but I can tell it's funny. It made me smile, anyway. nt

13. By way of explanation:

One newton is the force required to cause a mass of one kilogram to accelerate at a rate of one meter per second squared. The pascal is a measure of pressure, expressed in newtons per meter squared. (it's the "metric" version of pounds per square inch.)
