Teaching Math in 1950: A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?
Teaching Math in 1960: A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?
Teaching Math in 1970: A logger exchanges a set “L” of lumber for a set “M” of money. The cardinality of set “M” is 100. Each element is worth one dollar. Make 100 dots representing the elements of the set “M.” The set “C”, the cost of production contains 20 fewer points than set “M.” Represent the set “C” as a subset of set “M” and answer the following question: What is the cardinality of the set “P” of profits?
Teaching Math in 1980: A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment: Underline the number 20.
Teaching Math in 1990: By cutting down beautiful forest trees, the Logger makes $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the forest birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down the trees? There are no wrong answers.

arievim: whats a WC?February 24, 2009 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm #1172458
isn’t a WC a bathroom? stands for “water chamber” or “water closet” or something, no?
It stands for Water Closet, and yes, it is a “bathroom” or toilet as we call it

One evening, a C, an Eb, and a G go into a bar. Bartender says: “Sorry,
but we don’t serve minors.”
So E flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a
few drinks, the fifth is diminished and G is out flat.
F comes in, tries to augment the situation but isn’t sharp enough.
D comes in and heads straight for the bathroom saying, ” Excuse me, I’ll
just be a second.”
Then A comes into the bar but the bartender isn’t convinced that this
relative of C isn’t a minor.
He notices a B flat hiding at the end of the bar and exclaims, “Get out,
you’re the 7th minor I’ve found here tonight.”
Eventually, the C sobers up, & realizes in horror that he’s under a
rest. The C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the
diminution of a minor, and sentenced to 10 years of da capo without coda
at an upscale correctional facility.
On appeal, however, C is found innocent of any wrongdoing, even
accidental, and that all accusations to the contrary are bassless.
The bartender decides, however, that since he’s had only tenor so
patrons, with the soprano out in the bathroom, and everything has become
alto much treble, he needs a rest, and closes the bar.February 25, 2009 3:51 am at 3:51 am #1172468beaconParticipant

A few more good bar jokes in honor of Adar, though bars and Adar have nothing in common:
A grasshopper walks into a bar. The bartender says, “We have a drink
here named after you.” The grasshopper says, “You have a drink named Bob?”
A skeleton walks into a bar and orders a beer and a mop.
A guy walked into a bar and ordered two drinks.
“How about a double instead?” asked the bartender.
“No. The second one is for my friend who doesn’t have time to join me here.”
So the bartender gives him the two drinks. He drinks them while alternately
sipping from each glass. This goes on for a few months. Every time he comes in he orders one for himself and one for his absent friend.
One day he comes in and orders only one drink.
“Is everything OK with your friend?” asked the bartender.
“Yeah, he’s fine. It’s just that my doctor told me to stop drinking.”
A bowl of cereal and some eggs walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve breakfast.”
A chicken walks into a bar.
The bartender says “We don’t serve poultry!”
The chicken says “That’s OK I just want a drink.”
A neutron walks into a bar. “I’d like a beer” he says.
The bartender promptly serves up a beer.
“How much will that be?” asks the neutron.
“For you?” replies the bartender, “no charge”
Descartes is mulling over his drink, and the bartender says, “We’re closing, would you like one for the road?”
Descartes replies, “I think not” and POOF! he vanishes.February 25, 2009 4:15 am at 4:15 am #1172470

A duck walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a beer. we dont serve ducks in here get out. again, the duck walks in, and again the bartender yells at it. it keeps on happening until finally the bartender tells the duck the next time it comes in, he’ll nail its beak to the floor. the duck walks in again, got any nails? no. good, got a beer?

Two rednecks are out hunting in the woods. Suddenly, one of them clutches his heart and drops to the ground. His friend is terrified, whips out his cellphone, and calls 911 (even the foreigners should know what that is).
911 Operator: Hello, 911 Emergency
Redneck: I need help! My friend just had a heart attack, and I think he’s dead! What do I do?
911 Operator: OK, sir, calm down. The first thing to do is to make sure he’s really dead.
Redneck: Alright, hang on there just one second.
(in the background, a gunshot is heard)
Redneck: OK, what do I do next?February 25, 2009 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #1172480
this is a reformed joke but it went something like this…
ask not what kapusta can do for you; but rather what you can do for kapusta
original: ask not what your country can do for you; but rather what you can do for your country

A man visits his friend’s home. They are sitting in the living room and following some sports game, when the man’s dog comes in to the room, curls up on the floor and goes to sleep.
Moments later, the dog starts mumbling things like, “There was this time, when I took on a 400 pound cat and really taught him a lesson” and, “When I was younger, I would have taken blue ribbon in every dog contest in the country if my owner hadn’t been too lazy to take me”.
The visitor turns to his friend and asks, “What in the world is up with your dog?”
The friend replied, “Oh, don’t pay any attention. It’s best to let sleeping dogs lie.”

Is this supposed to be some type of joke, or did you purposely flub Gary Larson’s name?
YW Moderator-39February 25, 2009 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #1172482
Here’s a shidduch one.
My friend called me up with a problem. He said that every time he is going out with a girl that he likes, and he brings her to meet his parents, his mother always finds something wrong with her. No matter what type of girl, she always says she doesn’t like her. Now my friend is desperate that he will never be able to find the right one.
I told him that from now on, he should start going out with girls that are just like his mother. That way, she won’t find any faults.
A little while later, he calls me back, very excited. “I did what you said, and I went out with this girl who is just like my mother. She walks like my mother, she talks like my mother, she even dresses like my mother!”
I replied, “So, nu, when’s the Mazel Tov?”
He said, “Not so fast… I took her to meet my parents, and my father doesn’t like her!”
I think that he purposely flubbed Larson’s name because Larson wrote cartoons and not jokes. That was adapted from his work. YW Moderator ##February 25, 2009 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #1172483David S.Member

/To prevent the possible threat of eye contact, verbal communication and
any sort of interaction between the holy men and saintly women of Klal

Brooklyn NY, should have alternate days for men and women, this applies
to both pedestrian shoppers and Rachmono Litzlon women drivers.
After extensive discussions with a wide range of both of our followers, we
have developed the following schedule which we feel will be amenable to
all. To ensure optimal mobility, we hereby designate 14th Avenue as the
alternative to be used by the gender that is banned from 13th avenue .
We also hereby permit members of Hatzoloh to use whatever route is
needed to expedite them in their holy work, but to respect the nature of our
ruling and not use red flashing lights when in proximity of 13th avenue as
red lights and sirens may arouse certain desires in our fellow Yidden. If
they must use lights and sirens, they should purchase our special ” 13th
Avenue Approved” light & siren kit.

We the undersigned strongly urge all members of our holy nation to adhere
and respect the above schedule and the meaning behind it. We beseech
you not to laugh behind our backs and mutter about how Kol Korehs like
this result in simply alienating our people as they don’t really address the
root of the problem but rather choose to gloss over it with meaningless
mindless declarations in the vain hope that it will make them relevant to
someone beyond their ever shrinking circle of tunnel-visioned followers.

n 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University.
On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully.
He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant’s foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Over twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over so it was close to where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, and then put it down. The elephant did that several times and then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.
Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter couldn’t help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs, and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
It probably wasn’t the same elephant.February 26, 2009 1:13 am at 1:13 am #1172489

The chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force decided that he would personally intervene in the recruiting crisis affecting all of our armed services. So, he directed that a nearby Air Force base be opened and that all eligible young men and women be invited. As he and his staff were standing near a brand-new F-15 Fighter, a pair of twin brothers who looked as if they had just stepped off a Marine Corps recruiting poster walked up to them.
The chief of staff walked up to them, stuck out his hand, and introduced himself. He looked at the first young man and asked, “Son, what skills can you bring to the Air Force?”
The young man looked at him and said, “I’m a pilot!”
The general got all excited, turned to his aide, and said, “Get him in today, all the paperwork done, everything, do it!” The aide hustled the young man off.
The general looked at the second young man and asked, “What skills to you bring to the Air Force?”
The young man said, “I chop wood!”
“Son,” the general replied, “we don’t need wood choppers in the Air Force. What do you know how to do?”
“I chop wood!”
“Young man,” huffed the general, “you are not listening to me. We don’t need wood choppers; this is the 21st century!”
“Well,” the young man said, “you hired my brother!”
“Of course we did,” said the general. “He’s a pilot!”
The young man rolled his eyes and said, “But I have to chop it before he can pile it!”February 26, 2009 2:08 am at 2:08 am #1172491February 26, 2009 2:09 am at 2:09 am #1172492

The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each
other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day,
he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
“Please wake me at 5:00 AM..” He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM
and he had missed his flight.. Furious, he was about to go and
see why his wife hadn’t wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by
the bed. The paper said, “It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.”
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.February 26, 2009 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #1172506
