mathematician, physicist, and engineer joke
I remember a joke from my college days that I still find funny:
"A mathematician, physicist and an engineer were asked how they would enclose sheep inside a fence with the minimum amount of fence.
The engineer first replied:
'I will count the sheep and calculate the minimum amount of fence necessary to enclose the sheep, and herd them in.'
The physicist thought and answered next:
'I will take a long fence, wrap it around the sheep and tighten the fence around them.'
The mathematician thought for a while and then answered:
'I will put a small fence around myself and declare that I am on the outside.'
