The ark lands after The Flood. Noah lets all the animals out. Says,
"Go and multiply." Several months pass. Noah decides to check up on the
animals. All are doing fine except a pair of snakes. "What's the problem?"
says Noah. "Cut down some trees and let us live there", say the snakes.
Noah follows their advice. Several more weeks pass. Noah checks on the
snakes again. Lots of little snakes, everybody is happy. Noah asks,
"Want to tell me how the trees helped?" "Certainly", say the snakes.
"We're adders, and we need logs to multiply."
What is "pi"?
Mathematician: Pi is thenumber expressing the relationship between the
circumference of a circle and its diameter.

Engineer: Pi is about 3.
Lemma: All horses are the same color.
Proof (by induction):
Case n=1: In a set with only one horse, it is obvious that all horses
in that set are the same color.
Case n=k: Suppose you have a set of k+1 horses. Pull one of these
horses out of the set, so that you have k horses. Suppose that all of
these horses are the same color. Now put back the horse that you took
out, and pull out a different one. Suppose that all of the k horses
now in the set are the same color. Then the set of k+1 horses are all
the same color. We have k true => k+1 true; therefore all horses are
the same color.

There are white zebra's ! We'll be famous !"

which is white on one side."

Von Neumann and Nobert Weiner were both the subject of many dotty
professor stories. Von Neumann supposedly had the habit of simply
writing answers to homework assignments on the board (the method
of solution being, of course, obvious) when he was asked how to solve
problems. One time one of his students tried to get more helpful
information by asking if there was another way to solve the problem.
Von Neumann looked blank for a moment, thought, and then answered,
Weiner was in fact very absent minded. The following story is told
about him: When they moved from Cambridge to Newton his wife, knowing
that he would be absolutely useless on the move, packed him off to
MIT while she directed the move. Since she was certain that he would
forget that they had moved and where they had moved to, she wrote down
the new address on a piece of paper, and gave it to him. Naturally,
in the course of the day, an insight occurred to him. He reached in
his pocket, found a piece of paper on which he furiously scribbled
some notes, thought it over, decided there was a fallacy in his idea,
and threw the piece of paper away. At the end of the day he went
home (to the old address in Cambridge, of course). When he got there
he realized that they had moved, that he had no idea where they had
moved to, and that the piece of paper with the address was long gone.
Fortunately inspiration struck. There was a young girl on the street
and he conceived the idea of asking her where he had moved to, saying,
"Excuse me, perhaps you know me. I'm Norbert Weiner and we've just
moved. Would you know where we've moved to?" To which the young
girl replied, "Yes daddy, mommy thought you would forget."

Theorem: a cat has nine tails.
No cat has eight tails. A cat has one tail more than no cat. Therefore,
a cat has nine tails.
These Jokes were collected by me, Chris Litchfield.
They can be offensive and so if you have a delicate taste, forget reading them.
I take no resposibility for the jokes contained in the JOKIN series. I
am the collector and the editor.
I felt the need for good jokes files around the country and I have
collected a few good ones, very few. I have scanned many a message and have
written many a good joke to put together the JOKIN series. Leave any jokes you
have in many of the NetMail systems around the country and it may eventually
get into the JOKIN series. Above all.. I want this to be FUNNY!
P.S. Please do not split the files up or rename them! Jokes should be seen in
only one place and duplicated jokes are a pain!
A man went into the proctologist's office for his first exam.
The doctor told him to have a seat in the examination room and that he
would be with him in just a few minutes. Well, when the man sat down
in the examination room, he noticed that there were three items on a
stand next to the doctor's desk: a tube of K-Y jelly, a rubber glove,
and a beer.
When the doctor came in, the man said, "Look Doc, this is my
first exam... I know what the K-Y is for... and I know what the glove
is for... but what's the BEER for?"
At this instant, the doctor became noticably outraged and
stormed over to the door. The Doc flung the door open and yelled to
his nurse, "Dammit all!!! I said `a BUTT LIGHT'!!!"

The Ideal Wife should be beautiful, but not so beautiful
that people think you married her only for her beauty. And The

There once was a yellow toad. He was a very unhappy toad because he had
no friends. Thus, he consulted a magician, who was able to turn him
brown, except for his private parts. When queried, the magician said,
For that you must see the Wizard; I never have much luck with those."
On the way to see the Wizard, the toad encountered a pink elephant, who
was leaning against a rock and crying. "What's the matter?" asked the
toad. "I'm pink! That's what's the matter." said the elephant. "No
problem," said the toad, "just go see the magician." So the elephant
did, and the magician turned him grey - except, again, for his private
parts. "For that you must see the Wizard," said the magician. "How do
I find the Wizard?" asked the elephant.
"Simple," said the magician, "just follow the yellow-prick toad!"
As Ensigns in the Navy, Bill and Bob were assigned to the detail
that goes to the parents' house to break the sad news, in this case
that a son had been killed at sea in a plane crash. Bill was very
uncomfortable with the role, and is barely able to stammer through
"Mrs. Jones, ah, it's my sad duty to, um, inform you your son was
killed in the service of your country."
She breaks down in tears and moans, "Oh, I'll never be able to look
at him in his coffin."
And Bob says, "Oh, don't worry about that; it's no problem... They
didn't recover his body."

A rope went into a bar where a sign prominently displayed proclaimed "NO
ROPES SERVED". "Can't you read the sign? It says 'NO ROPES SERVED',"
said the beertender.
Dejected, the rope went home and put on a disguise--dark glasses, heavy
overcoat, mussy hair. Back to the bar he went.
"Hey, I know you, you were in here before. You're a rope, and the sign
says .;.. well you know what it says. Now >O*U*T
Truly down in the mouth now, the rope was at his wits' end. He went
home and cut off his ends and unraveled himself into his component
twiney parts, and tied himself up into a big half-hitch. He then
returned to the bar, tattered ends dragging, and draped himself over the
chair. "May I help you?" asked the barman. "Wait ... there's something
awfully familiar about you ... didn't I throw you outa here twice
already? Are you a rope?" "No," replied the rope, "I'm a frayed knot."
Bob, Don and Joe were lifelong friends. Suddenly one day Joe

somebody always says 'Here comes Joe with the two assholes.'"

a seat in a confessional.
"Father," he said, "I am making love twice a day
to an eighteen-year-old girl."
"Mr. Solomon, you're Jewish," the priest replied.
