Wade Clarke is a Sydney-based musician and 'jack of many trades.'
You will find his rather strange and varied collection of cartoons at his Ocular Trauma site. I think this is his only mathematical cartoon, but it spread virally throughout the world some years ago.
Well done, Wade, for your mischievous sense of humour!
This is one of my own, based on a rather bad pun that I encountered once.
If you know what a binomial product is (in algebra), you will probably have encountered the FOIL mnemonic. I hope this 'nerdy' joke makes sense to you.
This is a terrible pun but, if you know how to integrate 1/x, you will appreciate the humour!
When I was at school, my teacher shared this pun and the previous one with my class.
Almost everyone groaned!
It appears that this limerick was originally written by Jon Saxon, the author of mathematics text books.
Not only does it read well (rhyme and rhythm), but it is written in mathematical symbols and is arithmetically correct! What an achievement!
This amazing pun is quite well-known in mathematical circles.
It was created by Betsy Devine and Joel Cohen and first published in their 1992 book, Absolute Zero Gravity: Science Jokes, Quotes and Anecdotes (Simon and Schuster).
