Question: Why did the chicken cross the Möbius Strip?
Answer: To get to the other... um... er...
----------------------------------------------------
An engineer and a mathematician have to build a fence around a flock of sheep, using as little material as possible.
The engineer herds the flock into a circular shape and constructs a fence around it.
The mathematician thinks for a while, then builds a fence around himself and defines himself as being outside.

In some foreign country a priest, a lawyer and an engineer are about to be guillotined.
The priest puts his head on the block, they pull the rope and nothing happens -- he declares that he's been saved by divine intervention -- so he's let go.
The lawyer is put on the block, and again the rope doesn't release the blade, he claims he can't be executed twice for the same crime and he is set free too.
They grab the engineer and shove his head into the guillotine, he looks up at the release mechanism and says, "Wait a minute, I see your problem..."

Theorem: All horses have an infinite number of legs.
Proof (by intimidation): Everyone would agree that all horses have an even number of legs. It is also well-known that horses have forelegs in front and two legs in back. 4+2=6 legs, which is certainly an odd number of legs for a horse to have! Now the only number that is both even and odd is infinity; therefore all horses have an infinite number of legs.
