This is a thread for jokes about mathematics.

Although I'm not sure if this qualifies as a mathematics joke here is my own take on a well-known classic joke.

Q: Why was six afraid of seven?
A: Because seven is a registered six offender.

As opposed to the classic "because 7 ate 9".

Why are computer scientists so bad with holidays?

Because DEC 25 == OCT 31

When Noah landed his boat, he told all the animals to "go forth and multiply".
A few weeks later he was doing the rounds and noticed that the mr and mrs snake weren't complying.
He inquired why? They replied "We can't we're adders!"


So anyway another month or so passed and Noah met the snakes again, with a brood of snakelings in tow...
What happened he asked, they replied "We discovered logs!"

Q: Why do they never serve beer at a math party?
A: Because you can't drink and derive.

(My spell check seems to have switched to British, and it underlines "math".)
