politics joke 

When I used to read the left-wing news, all I learned about were police brutality, concentration camps and race riots in America. But now that I read the right-wing news, I see so much more: that the left controls all the big businesses, that we dominate in academia, and that we're on the verge of taking over the entire world. You know – it makes me feel a whole lot better!

@dankwraith very disappointed that the nlab article on monads does not start with "basically, a monad is a monoid in the category of endofunctors"

ME, ONE YEAR AGO: this mexican party is good, but it has... how can one say ... too many people? there are in fact, only so many people one can dance with in the course of a party. I think I'm right in saying that, aren't I?

MY WIFE: this is absurd!

ME: my dear, don't take it too hard. it's quality celebrating. there are simply too many people. just remove a few, and it will be perfect.

MY WIFE: which few did you have in mind?

Thunderdome in characteristic 3:

Two men enter. One man leaves.

my other favourite mathematical joke 

A biologist, physicist and mathematician are in a café, watching a house across the street. They see three people enter the house, and a while later four people leave the house.

The physicist says: "I thought the house was empty at the start. There must have been a measurement error."
The biologist says: "Why? They could have reproduced in the meantime."
The mathematician says: "Both of you are wrong. If one person enters the house, it will be empty again."
