A logophile is a person who’s really into words. And as proud logophiles ourselves, we laughed out loud reading it. So, you know that common phrase people use to comfort someone, “there, there, there?”
Well, that’s a fun linguistically-diverse take on it, with three different words that sound exactly like the original “there” but are spelled differently. Naturally, a logophile would have a field day with this and feel better in a heartbeat.
On a Different Note
This one takes some musical theory knowledge to get to the bottom of, so, if you don’t have it, you probably won't laugh. C, E-flat, and G are the notes comprising the chord C-minor.
So naturally, when they all go into a bar together, no bartender in their right mind would offer them service. Hey, why should he risk getting a fine? It's totally not worth it.
We've all had our parents say this to us at one point in our childhood (okay, maybe more): "I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times." Basically, this means something along the lines of, you spoiled brat, why can't you just do as I say for once in your life?
Anyways, this joke offers a mathematical variation of this good old saying. This probably isn't the most hilarious joke on this list, but we think it's pretty cool.
Not So Pro-verbial
Roman scholar Marcus Tullius Cicero was famous for his, well, let's just call it 'unique' style of oratory.
Since Cicero had a thing for long and complex sentences, he'd often delay the verbs to emphasize a point, which makes it clear why in the current situation, pretty much no one understands what the heck he's talking about. No disrespect for Cicero. Well, maybe just a tiny bit of disrespect.
So, a quick recap on quantum physics so you could understand this one: Famous physicist Werner Heisenberg – who is a major celebrity among physics students, by the way – was the one to come up with the "Uncertainty Principle" back in the day.
Basically, this principle says that we have the ability to know either the speed of a quantum particle or its location, but we can never be aware of both at the same time. Hence Heisenberg's answer to the cop. If you ask us, he should be fined. For being too funny.
