**Joke 1:**

Four friends have been doing really well in their calculus class: they have been

getting top grades for their homework and on the midterm. So, when it’s time for the

final, they decide not to study on the weekend before, but to drive to another

friend’s birthday party in another city – even though the exam is scheduled for Monday

morning. As it happens, they drink too much at the party, and on Monday morning, they

are all hung over and oversleep. When they finally arrive on campus, the exam is

already over. They go to the professor’s office and offer him an explanation: “We went

to our friend’s birthday party, and when we were driving back home very early on

Monday morning, we suddenly had a flat tire. We had no spare one, and since we were

driving on backroads, it took hours until we got help.” The professor nods

sympathetically and says: “I see that it was not your fault. I will allow you to make

up for the missed exam tomorrow morning.”

When they arrive early on Tuesday morning,

the students are put by the professor in a large lecture hall and are seated so far

apart from each other that, even if they tried, they had no chance to cheat. The exam

booklets are already in place, and confidently, the students start writing. The first

question – five points out of one hundred – is a simple exercise in integration, and

all four finish it within ten minutes. When the first of them has completed the

problem, he turns over the page of the exam booklet and reads on the next one:

Problem 2 (95 points out of 100): Which tire went flat?

**Joke 2:**

A mathematician, statistician and accountant were finalists for a position as VP in a

large corporation. The hiring committee asked them all the same last question:

The mathematician was first.”How much is 500 plus 500 ?”, they asked.

“1000” he replied

without hesitation.

“Thank you”, they dismissed him.

Next the statistician.

“How much is 500 plus 500?”

“On the average, 1000 with 95 %

confidence” replied the statistician.

“Thank you”, they dismissed him.

Next the accountant.

“How much is 500 plus 500?”

“What would you like it to be?”

responded the accountant.

They hired the accountant.

Joke 3:

Several people are asked to prove that all odd integers greater than 2 are prime.

**Tenured mathematician**: 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is not prime. Ha! A

counterexample.

**Statistician**: Let’s verify this on

several randomly selected odd numbers, say, 23, 47, and 83.

**Computer programmer**: 3 is prime, 3

is prime, 3 is prime, 3 is prime…

**Politician**:

Shouldn’t the goal really be to create a greater society where all numbers are prime?

**Sarah Palin**: What’s a prime?
