This page includes a few mathematically humourous jokes and sayings that any mathematician can appreciate! The jokes contain something essential about mathematics and the mathematical way of thinking. Enjoy! Q: What did zero say to eight? A: Nice belt!!
We're moving! I'm in the process of dismantling this joke site and migrating it over to a more accessible, easier-to-update blog. You can check it out at Let epsilon be less than zero . However, until the move is completed, I'm keeping this archive available... but note that more and more of the links will forward you to their new home. Math jokes
An engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician are trying to set up a fenced-in area for some sheep, but they have a limited amount of building material.

One mathematician claimed that this average was woefully inadequate, the other maintained that it was surprisingly high. "I'll tell you what," said the cynic. "Ask that waitress a simple math question.
