Some of the Best Math Jokes I Have Found

In my meanderings around the web, I have come across many, many math jokes.  Unfortunately, not many of these are funny.  The jokes that I have found to be funny were posted on the Facebook page at one time or another – most of them; the ones that were not suitable for all family members were left out – mostly.

Anyway, here is a list of the ones I thought were very good.  They are not in any particular order.  If you have any that you feel should be added, please add yours in the comments!  Enjoy!!
