Take a break from the drudgery with some of these jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor that has been
collected from friends & from websites across the Internet. This humor is light-hearted and sometimes slightly
offensive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. I have taken care to censor "humor" with reproductive
function innuendo and hateful
tirades, so it is all workplace-safe. I have also tried to warn of any links that will result in audio
clips so you can take appropriate precautions. Please send any potential candidates for this humor
page to the e-mail link above.

These jokes were collected from various

- Scientists have shown that the moon is moving away at a tiny, although measurable distance, from the earth
every year. If you do the math, you can calculate that 85 million years ago the moon was orbiting the earth at a

ones, anyway. - Anon

- A man is driving down a country road, when he spots a farmer standing in the middle of a huge field of
grass. He pulls the car over to the side of the road and notices that the farmer is just standing there, doing
nothing, looking at nothing.
The man gets out of the car, walks all the way out to the farmer and asks him,
"Ah excuse me mister, but what are you doing?"
The farmer replies, "I'm trying to win a Nobel Prize."
"How?" asks the man, puzzled.
"Well I heard they
give the Nobel Prize to people who are out standing in their field."
- Some time ago a piece of paper was posted around here where I study saying something like this: "Theory is
when you know how it works but it still doesn't. Practice is when it works but you don't know why. In this
Department [Physics], theory and practice are joined together: nothing works and no one knows why!"
- Just outside of Munich, Germany, Werner Heisenberg went for a drive and got stopped by a traffic cop. The
cop asked, "Do you know how fast you were going?" Heisenberg replied, "While there is uncertainty in my speed,
but I do know precisely where I am."
