What’s So Funny? Oh, Nothing

If Charles Seife can write a book about nothing, and Jerry Seinfeld can have a show about nothing, then certainly I can create a blog post about nothing.0

The following quote is attributed to Les Dawson:

There is a remote tribe that worships the number zero.
Is nothing sacred?

Here are some other jokes about nothing.

What do you get when you cross a pigeon and a zero?
A flying none!

Why was the number zero fired?
Because he added no value to his company.

Black holes are where God divided by zero.

Finally, here’s a longer joke about nothing that did not receive the approval of PETA.

A scientist is attempting to determine the relationship between the number of legs a frog has and how far it can jump. The scientist sets a frog on the ground and yells, “Jump, frog!” The frog launches itself a good distance. In his notebook, the scientist writes, “Frog with 4 legs: 6 feet.”

The scientist then removes the frog’s front legs and again yells, “Jump, frog!” Though hobbled, the frog still puts forth a reasonable effort. In his notebook, the scientist writes, “Frog with 2 legs: 2 feet.”

The scientist then removes the frog’s back legs and again yells, “Jump, frog!” Not surprisingly, the frog does not move. Again, the scientist yells, “Jump, frog!” And again, the frog does not move. In his notebook, the scientist writes, “Frog with 0 legs: Inconclusive results. The frog has become deaf.”

No animals were harmed in the telling of this joke.
