Matt Parker Explains Math Jokes
I’ve learned one thing in my life — the least funny math jokes are the ones you have to explain. As E. B. White said,
Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but the thing dies in the process, and the innards are discouraging to any but the pure scientific mind.
Matt Parker, who did an interview with MJ4MF not too long ago, disagrees. In the following video, he explains some classic math jokes. Worth a look — his commentary on the jokes is far more interesting than the explanations.
