An Engineer, A Physicist, And A Mathematician Find Themselves In An Anecdote, Indeed An Anecdote Quite Similar To Many That You Have No Doubt Already Heard.

HomeShort JokesScience Humor

An engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician find themselves in an
anecdote, indeed an anecdote quite similar to many that you have no
doubt already heard. After some observations and rough calculations,
the engineer realizes the situation and starts laughing. A few
minutes later the physicist understands, too, and chuckles to himself
happily as he now has enough experimental evidence to publish a paper.
This leaves the mathematician somewhat perplexed, as he had observed
right away that he was the subject of an anecdote, and deduced quite
rapidly the presence of humour from similar anecdotes, but considers
this anecdote to be too trivial a corollary to be significant, let
alone funny.
