Geek Joke: Awful Math Joke :LOL:

Thanks to Captain Vittle's sense of math humour, I just can't stop the urge to share this math joke:

A snake breeder was having trouble getting his newest snakes to mate. He tried every trick of the trade, but to no avail. With all his options exhausted, he decided to get some help, so he contacted a local zoologist. He explained the problem to her, but she said she'd have to see the snakes before she could offer practical advice.

When she got to the snake breeder's ranch and saw the snakes, she immediately knew what to do. "Cut down that big tree over there," she said. "Cut the tree in half, then use the pieces to make two sturdy tables. Put the tables and the snakes into a cage, and they should be mating very soon." The snake breeder thought that was the stupidest thing he had ever heard, but he was out of options so he decided to give it a shot.

Sure enough, the snakes mated! He was astounded that this actually worked, and he called the zoologist to get an explanation. "It's really quite simple," she said. "As soon as I saw the snakes were actually adders, I knew what had to be done. It's common knowledge that to get adders to multiply, you need to use log tables!"
