Paul Grenfell nominates this vanity plate:
…because, Secondary Software Characteristic would be too long.
Not bad. My personal favorite, which is somewhat multidisciplinary, is:
“What do you get when you cross a tsetse fly with a mountain climber?”
“Nothing. You can’t cross a vector with a scaler!”
BTW, kudos to whoever put that on an original Bug, not one of the character-less modern versions.
I can totally relate 😉
My nerdiest joke:
Erwin Schroedinger, Kurt Goedel, and Noam Chomsky walk into a bar. Schroedinger goes, “wait a second, I think we may be in a joke. I wish we could tell if it was funny.” Goedel goes, “we’re in the joke; it’s mathematically impossible for us to tell if the joke is funny from the inside.” Chomsky responds, “Of course it’s funny, you’re just telling it wrong.”
Two scientists walk into a bar.
The first one says “I’ll have some H2O”.
The second one says “I’ll have some H2O too”.
The second one dies.
What’s purple and commutes?
An Abelian grape.
(I actually used this as the basis for a Halloween costume. Nobody at my law firm got it, even though we’re all patent lawyers.)
Sure sign of dementia.
It has been at least three hours since I first saw this picture.
I just got it…

What do you get when you put root beer in a square glass?
@ernieyeball: If it had been on one of the real old Volkswagen Bugs and shot from a slightly different angle I bet you would have had no difficulty.
It wasn’t until I identified what type of car it was that I caught the joke.

Thank you for your solace. However it would be more aptly directed at Laura Bassett.
As I read Franklin’s 10:19 post (…the one that has the word bug in it…) I said to myself: “That’s not an original bug. The tail lights are too big!”
I still didn’t get it.
I call it brain rot. At 67 I live with it every day. It bugs me to death…
@ernieyeball: Sorry, I didn’t mean the *very* original one, I was just loosely referring to old vs. new Beetles. Heh.
Anyway, I presume your avatar is from Michigan. Are you also a Great Lake State dweller?
I am counting a Great Lake State as one of the eight Nifty Fifty that has borders defined by one of the five Great Lakes.
In my youth I lived on the shores of Lake Ontario enduring 12 brutal winters in Rochester NY. I have traveled US Route 20 along the beaches of Lake Erie in Pennsylvania and Ohio in the ’50s before the Interstates were built.
The Indiana Dunes were a great place to drink and try to pick up girls when I was in High School.
IL, IN, MI, NY, OH and WI are 6 of the 14 states I visited to ply my trade in the landline telephone industry.
So yeah, I have spent my fair share of time in the region.
Today I live in Illinois a good 300 miles south of that summer playground.
That’s fine with me.
Especially in the winter as I see reports of lake effect snow or the New York State Thruway closed at Buffalo.
While it’s not really old, it’s a 74, built in early September 73, one of the first off the floor near as I could tell from the VIN.
How do I know? It’s my car.
@apk:..It’s my car.
Where have U been the last 13 days, China?
