67 Jokes About Math You Might Not Get At All

Back when the Internet was still a baby, the primary users were its creators, math and tech-oriented academics. So as a result, math jokes have an elemental role in the history of the web. Sure, funny TikToks and animal snapchats may have overshadowed them, but browse a few geeky subreddits and Twitter hashtags and you will still find them.

Mathematician and author John Allen Paulos in his book Mathematics and Humor described several ways that mathematics — generally considered a dry, formal activity — overlaps with humor: both are forms of “intellectual play”; both have “logic, pattern, rules, structure”; and both are “economical and explicit”. Bored Panda thinks the man definitely has a point, so we compiled the best math jokes we could find online to prove it.
