Stoner humour

A quick prelude:

(from "... The stone is a unit of weight and mass. It is part of the Imperial system of weights and measures used in the British Isles, and formerly used in most Commonwealth countries. It is equal to 14 pounds avoirdupois...."

Imagine a Quality Control procedure for weighing balances whereby each balance is tested with a 'unit' stone, a stone weighing exactly one stone. This unit stone would be loaded onto the balance and balanced against a counterweight or set of counterweights weighing a stone totally. Now,

Q) Why might this procedure fail for balances made of ferromagnetic materials?

A) Because the 'unit' stone being used would be loaded onto the balance, making it a load stone (lodestone).

Hahahahaha! Can you beat that? Can you find a daya-er joke than this?

With Twos and Threes

Here's a sample drop from Sagar's vast ocean of bad jokes:

If all 2s are 3, then what is 3 * 3?

It is 37.

3 * 3 = 3 ^ 2 (Three square)
= 3 ^ 3 (Three cube, since 2s are 3)
= 27
= 37 (Since 2s are 3s)

So, (Ans) 37.

From Srinath Perur:

....No. 5, 1948, is an abstract painting that was sold in November 2006, for a record price of $140 million!! The painter, Jackson Pollock, was one of the most influential painters of the abstract expressionist movement. His unique style of painting consisted of fixing a canvas on a wall or on the floor, and then dripping or splashing paint on it. This style of painting is referred to as Action Art. His Kerala theme paintings are called Colorippayattu.

Jose's English Wedding

Once a British Monarch decided to have a Swayamvar for his daughter. However, this lady wasn't too bright. So, she insisted that she marry someone less bright than her, for she didn't want to hear any "I'm smarter than you" nonsense.

The king agreed, and the news was announced. Six brave knights were arrived and the king decreed, "Go out in the world and do stuff. The one who does the stupidest 'stuff' wins."

The competition was set. The knights, A B C D E and F set out to do dumb things. However there was a clear winner - one managed to outdo the others by a *huge* margin. Who?

(Ans) The winner was D, for he was "Sir Dee"! [Highlight]

Potato joke

There was once a potato that went to God and cribbed.

"Dear God, we lead nonexistent lives. These humans, they peel us, boil us, mash us, cut us, fry us, saute us, and finally eat us. Sometimes, our skins are also not spared and they also get eaten. Oh God, please help us in making our lives better."

God answers, "Yummy!".

Note: Joke credited to this woman who recounted to us the time when her History teacher, Mrs. Thyagarajan told them the above joke in school. Nostalgia for all those who were in Cathedral, Mumbai.

P.S: The joke sounded 'funny' when it was told as Ateya has a nice way of telling jokes. Let me see if I can someone to record it when she gets nostalgic again.
