    In a vein similar to the first joke: I am currently taking a course in operations research. Our instructor assigned a problem about waiting times last week, with a setup along the lines of “At Gotham City Airport, there is a security checkpoint [which can be modeled by a Markov process with parameters x, y, z]. On average, how long will passengers have to wait in line to get through the checkpoint?”

    My immediate response was, “Airport? In Gotham? They’ll wait in line as long as Batman tells them to!”
