That was a low bar.  But at least I got them all, so I don't feel stupid.

These are just nerd jokes.

What do you get when you cross a grape and an elephant?
Grape elephant sin(theta).

What do you get when you cross an elephant and a mountain climber?
You can't because a mountain climber is a scalar.

Two mathematicians are sitting in a restaurant, having a debate about the state of education.

One states that the average person cannot solve simple calculus problems, to which the other counters that broad public education enables the average person to solve those problems. The skeptical mathematician proposes they ask their waitress a simple problem to see if she can solve it.

The second mathematician privately thinks that their waitress probably wouldn't be able to answer it, so he excuses himself to talk to her beforehand. He finds her near the kitchen and says, "Hey, listen. My colleague and I wanted to ask you a simple calculus question when you returned to our table. Just remember that the answer is (1/3)x3." The waitress nods and the man returns to his table.

A few minutes pass and the waitress comes by and delivers their appetizer. "Is there anything else I can help you with?" she asks. "Actually, there is; a little math test. Do you happen to know the indefinite integral of x2?" The waitress thinks for a moment and responds, "Oh that's easy. It's (1/3)x3 + C

*sigh*  How many surrealists does it take to change a lightbulb?

Two.  One to hold the giraffe, and the other to fill the bathtub with brightly colored power tools.

There are so many variations of this joke that it will make your head spin around and melt.

A little high brow maybe but if you think about for a while most of you should get it eventually....

A husband, one bright sunny morning, turns to his lovely wife, "Wife, we're going fishing this weekend, you, me and the dog."
The wife grimaces, "But I don't like fishing!"
"Look! We're going fishing and that's final."
"Do I have to go fishing with you... I really don't want to go!"
"Right I'll give you three choices... 1 You come fishing with me and the dog... 2 You give me a BLOW JOB.... 3 or you take it up the ass!"
The wife grimaces again, "But I don't want to do any of those things!"
" I've given you three options.. You'll HAVE to do one of them! I'm going to the garage to sort out my fishing tackle, when I come back I expect you to have made up your mind!"
The wife sits and thinks about it.
Twenty minutes later her husband comes back, "Well! What have you decided? FISHING with me and the dog, BLOW JOB, or ass?"
The wife complains some more and finally makes up her mind, "O.K. I'll give you a blow job!"
"Great!" He says and drops his pants. 
The wife is on her knees doing the business. Suddenly she stops, looks up at her Husband, "Oh! It tastes absolutely disgusting... It tastes all shiatty!"
"Yeah" says her husband "The dog didn't want to go fishing either."

One of the jokes I made up with my 7-year-old:

Q:  What did the chair say to the table?
A:  Nothing, chairs don't talk.

Q:  What did the table say to the chair?
A:  Nothing, because of the norm of reciprocity.

How is filling a bathtub with machine parts surreal? How else is one supposed to degrease the cylinder heads without a utility sink?

These are fun and cute, nit "genius" level jokes, though...

My wife was making drink coasters for my niece and nephew (chemical and metallurgical engineers, respectively) , and my stepson(Welder) who graduated this year, and she was looking up jokes and sayings. Same things, they were fun, and might have a little bit of an "inside knowledge" thing, but not genius level. The one I can think of off of the top of my head was a welding one: 'I'd tell you a welding joke, but all of the good ones Argon.'. Fun, but not worth writing a newspaper article over.

Once I was contacted by a guy from "Stuff" magazine, because they were writing an article about tasteless math and science jokes, with explanations, to teach their readers science and mathematics.  They contacted me, because they found a joke on Usenet that I wrote, and they wanted an explanation.

The joke was about a mathematician whose son was run over by a steamroller.  The mathematician had to go to the morgue to ID what was left of the body.  When he was asked if he could identify the remains, he replied, "no, but I can identify a pair of antipodal points."

And the first psychoanalyst says, "I was having dinner with my mother, and what I meant to say was, 'Mother, please pass the salt.'  But what came out was, 'Mother, you biatch, you ruined my whole farking life.'"

A mathematician, a biologist, and a physicist are having lunch at an outdoor cafe.  Across the street, two people walk into a building.  Five minutes later, three people come out.

"That's impossible," declares the physicist, "that violates conservation of mass!"

"No, you idiot," says the biologist, "those two people obviously reproduced while they were inside."

The mathematician shrugs, "well all I know is, if one person walks into the building it will be empty."

Three statisticians go bow-hunting in the woods.  They spot a large buck in the distance, and the first man draws his bow, fires.  His shot goes left, and he misses the buck by four feet.  The second man draws his bow and fires.  His shot goes right, and misses the buck by four feet.  The third man stands and excitedly yells "We got him!"

FrancoFile: Two behavioral economists are walking down the sidewalk.  They see a Ferrari parked on the side of the road.

One of the economists says "You know, I've always wanted a Ferrari".  The other economist says "Obviously not".


A group of economists and mathematicians board a train to go to a conference.  The economists each have a train ticket, and the mathematicians have only one ticket for the whole group.

"What are you, idiots?" say the economists.  "You need a ticket per person."

"Oh, we have a method," say the mathematicians.

Then they hear the conductor coming, and the mathematicians all cram into a bathroom at the back of the car.  The conductor clicks everyone's ticket, then knocks on the occupied bathroom door and says "tickets, please."  A ticket slides out from under the door, the conductor clicks it, and slides it back.

The economists feel like fools after seeing this, but then say "clearly we can apply this method to economics."  On the trip back, they buy only one ticket for the whole group.  The mathematicians show up with no ticket at all.

"What are you, idiots?" say the economists.  "You need at least one ticket."

"Oh, we've refined our method."

Then they hear the conductor coming.  The mathematicians cram into a bathroom at the end of the car.  The economists cram into the other bathroom at the end of the car.  Then a mathematician steps out of the bathroom, goes to the other one, knocks on the door and says "tickets, please."
