    Okay, so most mathsy types will have seen this joke plenty of times. I was wondering whether anyone knew any more 'maths' jokes like this?

    I've found one!

    I'll be sin, you be cos. Do you prefer tan or cot? Cause I'm up for both!

    Proposition 1.1: All cats have 9 tails.

    Proof: 1 cat has 1 more tail than no cats. No cats have 8 tails. Thus, 1 cat has 9 tails. QED.

    A mathematician has been invited to speak at a conference. His talk is announced as

    Proof of the Riemann hypothesis.

    When the conference actually takes place, he speaks about something completely different.
    After his talk, a colleague asks him: "Did you find an error in your proof?"
    He replies: "No - I never had one."
    "But why did you make this announcement?"
    "That's my standard precaution - in case I die on my way to the conference..."

    Hmm. This is not a joke but based on the actual procedure(s) Hardy took whenever he travelled somewhere with a risk of dying.

    The reason is actually funny (along with his explanation) - the above just doesn't have the same flowing structure or his amusing take on God and is in fact rather dull. It is basically a butchery of a rather amusing ancedote.

    All in all a poor effort.

    Yet when you analyse any joke, it loses all humour...

    A constant function and e^x are walking down the street. Then suddenly the constant function sees a differential operator approaching and runs away. So e^x follows him and asks why the hurry. "Well, you see, there's this differential operator coming this way, and when we meet, he'll differentiate me and nothing will be left of me...!" "Ah," says e^x, "he won't bother ME, I'm e to the x!" and he walks on. Of course he meets the differential operator after a short distance.
    e^x: "Hi, I'm e^x"
    diff.op.: "Hi, I'm d/dy
