Blog carnivals are collections of blog posts around a single theme. There are blog carnivals for all kinds of topics, including mathematics. The most recent carnival for mathematics was hosted by Maxwell’s Demon, and starting today, a new carnival will be hosted by Wild About Math. They’re fun, if for no other reason than to let you see lots of blog listings all in one place, which might introduce you to some new bloggers.

Q: How many bloggers does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: 100. One to change the lightbulb, and 99 to comment on how it should have been done.

A man walks into a blogger’s office and sees a parrot next to the blogger’s desk.

“Does he talk?” the man asks.

“Nah,” says the parrot. “He just clicks.”

This irrationality will only be corrected if p=q. This proves Fermat’s Last Theorem.
