Умственные анекдоты

"Биолог, химик и статистик пошли на охоту. Биолог выстрелил в оленя и промахнулся на пять шагов влево. Вслед за ним выстрелил химик и промахнулся на пять шагов вправо. "Мы его убили!" - торжествующе заорал статистик."

А этот лень переводить (после оленя), но и он стоит чтения ради пояснения редакции о Хомски-Чомски:

“Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Gödel, and Noam Chomsky walk into a bar. Heisenberg turns to the other two and says, ‘Clearly this is a joke, but how can we figure out if it's funny or not?’ Gödel replies, ‘We can't know that because we're inside the joke.’ Chomsky says, ‘Of course it's funny. You're just telling it wrong.’ ”

Why it’s funny: Because Heisenberg is uncertain, Godel sees that the joke is logically incomplete, and Chomsky is an asshole. I mean, because Chomsky distinguishes between the joke itself and the linguistic performance.
