INTELLECTUAL JOKES. Tyler Cowen on the Marginal Revolution site posed a question that he got from the AskReddit site: What’s the most intellectual joke you know? The responses included a lot of good jokes, many puns, and some jokes that required very advanced math or physics.
Here is a physics joke from the comments that I understood somewhat:
From Anony (June 26 at 10:27 a.m.): Heisenberg and Schrodinger are on a road trip, when a cop pulls them over. The officer walks up and asks if they know how fast theyâ€™re going. Heisenberg replies that they do not, but know with high precision where they are. The cop thinks thatâ€™s weird, and begins to search the vehicle. He opens the trunk and asks, â€œdid you know youâ€™ve got a dead cat in the trunk?â€ Schrodinger says, â€œwell, *now* we do.â€
Here is an important economics joke from the comments:
From Greg (June 26 at 10:52 am) Two economists walked past a Porsche showroom. One of them pointed at a shiny car in the window and said, â€œI want that.â€ â€œObviously not,â€ the other replied.
