I notice that everyone here has an answer for the beer joke. Is it cocktail hour yet?

You know about the student who answered the test question about how to measure the height of a tall building using a barometer, right?

1. Go to the top of the building.
2. Tie a rope to the barometer.
3. Lower it off the side of the building to the ground.
4. Measure the rope.

What do you get when you cross an elephant with a mountain climber?

You can’t. A mountain climber is a scalar.

Oct 32 = Dec 25 means OCTAL 32 (base 8) is equal to DECIMAL 25 (Base 10)

(3 x 8) + 2 = (2 x 10) + 5

Pavlov is known for his experiments where he would ring a bell and feed a dog, after a while the dog learned that the bell meant they would be fed and start to salivate even when no food was present, this has become know as Pavlov’s response. or a Pavlovian response. The joke is a play on his experiment where they are implying he is having a Pavlovian response to feed the dog every time a bell rings.

A plumber would say Yoonyunized, as in being in a union. A chemist would say un-eye-oh-nized, as in not ionized.

Chomsky claims that the reason communism hasn’t been successful is because no one has done it right yet.

That's how I took it.

Number 8 is a logical truth statement: the baby can only be a boy or a girl.

How very closed minded of you. ;)

Thanks for these ... I sent them to my most intellectual friends (yup, both of them). Bumping for later review of the comments :-)

There are 10 types of people, those who understand binary, and those who don’t.

...and those who don't understand that this is a tertiary joke.

Heizenberg is known for the uncertainty principal, which is a quantum mechanical concept that relates to momentum and position... and states that the more certain you are to know ONE of these variable, the less certain you are to know the other hence his line “how can we know this is funny or not” in the joke.

Godel is known for the “Incompleteness Theorem”

For a given (non-trivial) formal system, there will be statements that are true in that system, but which cannot be proved to be true inside the system.

Hence since he is inside the Joke he cannot prove its funny or not because he’s INSIDE THE SYSTEM.

Chomsky is know for the Chomsky hierarchy (occasionally referred to as Chomsky–Schützenberger hierarchy) is a containment hierarchy of classes of formal grammars. So he’s arguing its funny you are just telling it wrong, I am interpreting as a play on bad grammar.

I will yeild to others on the chomsky, but that’s what I read it as.

The two fingers were a “V,” Roman numeral for 5.
