Completely frivolous post.
OK, my Halloween “costume” at school this year was pretty lame, but I actually did put a minute amount of thought into it.
In case you can’t read the sign, it says . If you remember some calculus and treat ice as your variable, that works out to –An Ice Cube! Ha!
But it gets better. As there weren’t any bounds, adding the random constant of integration makes it or “Ice Cube + C”, or maybe “Ice Cube + Sea”–I was really dressed up as an Iceberg. Ha! Ha! Having no idea how to dress like an iceberg, I wore a light blue shirt for the part of the iceberg above the water and dark blue pants for the part below the water. I tried to be clever even if the underlying joke was just “punny”.
Then a colleague posted another integral joke I’d seen sometime before. It has some lovely extensions, so I’ll share that, too.
What is ?
At first glance, it’s a “log cabin.” Funny.
But notationally, the result is actually , so the environmentalists out there will appreciate that the answer is really a “natural log cabin.” Even funnier.
The most correct solution is . If you call the end “+ Sea”, then the most clever answer is that is a “Houseboat”. Ha!
Hope you all had some fun.
