by Janie Jones

In honor of back to school, here’s some school related jokes:

Teacher: Can anyone give me a sentence with a direct object?
Student: You are pretty.
Teacher: What’s the direct object?
Student: A good report card.

Teacher: If you had 13 apples, 12 grapes, 3 pineapples and 3 strawberries, what would you have?
Student: Fruit salad.

Teacher: What is the chemical formula for water?
Student: H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O.

Tuesday Titters: This physics final will likely defy rhyme and reason

by Janie Jones

Today is the day.  My physics final begins at 7:30 am.  I am both petrified and relieved.  If I pass, I move on to physics 2 in the spring.  If I fail, I’ll have to revisit physics 1.

Here’s hoping my sad math brain doesn’t fail me.  Hopefully my humor won’t either…

rhyme or reasonlimit equations my favorite frequency V equals D divided by TI think if I understand enough to find these jokes funny, that should be all the physics I need.  I think I deserve an A, don’t you?

But, I’m definitely more a glass is half empty kinda person.

And I’m pretty sure my final will resemble this:

bad physics answers
I am not going to cite all these cartoons.  It’s obvious I didn’t make them, I’m not taking credit for making them, in fact, I blantantly stole them from Google images.  Some other more brilliant person deserves credit for sure, but if you want to know who you can research the more appropriate citations by clicking here.

So you *do* understand

by Janie Jones

Leif sent this to me last night.  Once I finished laughing my ass off, I decided I must share.


This exactly how I feel about physics, which by the way, is never easy, but is close to being the most sadistic, obtuse, and frustrating application of mathematics my sad little Jane Brain has ever encountered.

Thanks Leif.  You made my day.

Math Joke

by Janie Jones

I don’t know where this originated, and I definitely can’t take credit for it.  I saw it posted on a door on campus yesterday and it tickled me, even if it is a math joke:

In honor of Tuesday Titters and my Algebra final exam…

by Janie Jones

Today is my last final exam for spring semester.  I’m not much worried about my Algebra exam, but being done marks a special event:  Surviving the school year.  Huzzah!

So, here’s a horrible Algebra joke:

Carrot child:  Hey Dad, I’m so glad you’re home!  I really need some help with my Algebra homework.

Carrot dad:  I’ll do my best, but what makes you think I’ll be able to help?

Carrot teen:  Well, gee whiz Dad, all the hip guys always say, “Your Dad’s a real square root.”

Yeah, I told you it was bad.
