3 math jokes

Courtesy of Boris (answers in comments).

What is Banach-Tarski an anagram for?

What is a comathematician?

What do an isomorphism and Faust have in common?

These are all pretty retarded, except for the first which Indian S really liked.

– B



  1. Banach-Tarski Banach-Tarski

    A machine that turns cotheorems into ffee.

    They’re both demonic epics.

    – B

  2. zuckerman told the “extroverted mathematician” joke several times during his birthday conference. i think everyone had heard it before, so no one really found it as funny as he did.

    my personal favorite is the shortest math joke: take epsilon < 0 …but i have yet to find anyone else who also thinks it's funny…i do think that it is at least less retarded than the other math jokes i've heard.
