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.
Words of Comfort
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.
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.
To get this joke you need to know a little bit of chemistry, but don't worry, it's not too fancy.
The funny-ness of it is based on hydrogen atoms comprising of a (positive) proton in their nucleus, which is surrounded by a (negative) electron, making them neutral. Now, what happens once you remove the electron? That's right. You only stay with the positive bit!
So Long, and Thanks for the Fish
Here's a smart joke for the artsy people! Just so you won't say that we're being discriminative of the arts here. So, we all know the light bulb screwing genre of jokes, and honestly, we're not really sure if anyone finds those funny anymore.
But this surrealist take on the worn-out versions is bound to get you smiling at the least. Well, once you get why it's actually funny, that is. So, you know how surrealism is all about pieces of art that don't really make sense to anyone? So, that's why we have a fish.
