Several scientists were all posed the following question: “What is 2 * 2 ?”
The engineer whips out his slide rule, shuffles it back and forth, and finally announces, “3.99.”
The physicist consults his technical references, sets up the problem on his computer, and says, “It lies between 3.98 and 4.02.”
The mathematician cogitates for a while, then concludes, “I don't know what the answer is, but I can tell you, an answer exists!”
Philosopher smiles, “But what do you mean by 2 * 2 ?”
Logician replies, “Please define 2 * 2 more precisely.”
The sociologist says, “I don't know, but it was nice talking about it”.
Behavioural Ecologist claims, “A polygamous mating system.”
Medical student states: “4.”
All others are astonished. “How did you know?”
Medical student explains, “I memorized it.”
A blonde phoned police to report that thieves had stripped apart her car.
“They've stolen the dashboard, the steering wheel, the brake pedal, even the accelerator,” she cried out.
However, before the police investigation could start, the phone rang a second time and the same voice came over the line.
“Never mind, I got in the back seat by mistake.”
A guy in New York orders a taxi to go cross state. The taxi pulls up, and he gets in, carrying a large box which he puts in the back. They set out driving, while the guy is looking at the box nervously every ten minutes or so. When they get to New Jersey, the man calls his wife. “Hi Honey. Yes, they did give me the jewellery. I'll have it priced in Atlanta, it will probably be around 200 thousand. I’ll call you when I’m done.”
Half an hour later, he asks the driver to pull up at the nearest gas station so he can have lunch, the driver obliges so he can fill up on gas too. The man gets out, goes to the diner, has his lunch, gets back out, and sees that the driver has run out on him with the box.
He goes back calmly to the store and asks the clerk if he has a large empty box in the back.
The clerk asks, “What do you need it for?”
The guy replies, “Well, I have to be in Florida tomorrow.”
