MJ4MF on Bookviews

Alan Caruba, author of Bookviews, chose Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks as a December pick of the month:

“It takes all types” is the common cliché, and people whose lives revolve around the use of math are a type unto themselves. That’s why G. Patrick Vennebush has collected Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks […] Teachers in particular will enjoy and want to use this book, of course, but it will provide lots of laughs for anyone else whose work involves working the numbers. It is also proof they can be very funny, too.

Thanks, Alan!

His review also said, “[Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks] is a great stocking-stuffer.” There are only 10 shopping days left until Christmas. Have you bought a copy of MJ4MF for the geeks on your holiday list?

Q: What’s purple, round, and doesn’t get much for Christmas?
A: A finitely presented grape.

Q: An interesting mathematician, an extroverted actuary, and Santa Claus were walking together on a city sidewalk when they noticed a $20 bill on the ground. Who picked it up? 
A: Santa, of course — because the other two don’t exist!

Q (no A): If you multiply Santa by i, does that make him real?
