File Under: Joke, Funny

I know just enough about physics and linguistics to find this funny (from physicsweb.org):

“Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Godel and Noam Chomsky walk into a bar.

Heisenberg looks around the bar and says, “Because there are three of us and because this is a bar, it must be a joke. But the question remains, is it funny or not?”

And Godel thinks for a moment and says, “Well, because we’re inside the joke, we can’t tell whether it’s funny. We’d have to be outside looking at it.”

And Chomsky looks at both of them and says, “Of course it’s funny. You’re just telling it wrong.”

And if somebody asks nicely, I’ll share the joke my psychologist friend and I made up. It’s especially for those who’ve ever studied psych and/or education.
