Braindump: Drink Sizes

17 May 201307:21AMbraindump

Actually, maybe this one would do better as an "x, y, and z walk into a bar" style joke. Something like:

A student, a mathematician, and a generic academic walk into a KFC. The student orders some Original Recipe chicken. The generic academic points out that given the student's normal modus operandi, what he actually wants is derivative recipe chicken. Then the mathematician says something like, "The rate of change of chicken? What is this, a really lame joke?".

Then the academic and the mathematician argue for a while about the relative merits of their various worldviews while the student eats the chicken and leaves.


Look, it's a work in progress, okay? All I'm saying is the original/derivative dichotomy is some fertile joke-ground which has not been covered.
