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 they’re going. Heisenberg replies that they do not, but know with high precision where they are. The cop thinks that’s weird, and begins to search the vehicle. He opens the trunk and asks, “did you know you’ve got a dead cat in the trunk?” Schrodinger says, “well, *now* we do.”

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, “I want that.” “Obviously not,” the other replied.
