From the 1960s:

a∫sds=½ass

From another friend.  If I had learned more of these I might have done better in calculus.

a⌠   1     dcabin=log cabin
  ⌡ cabin

(formatting can be a real bear ...)

While we're working on bad puns, a chemical rebus:

K9·2Be10 = Hot Dog

 

(Yeah, I know, it may be off topic, but it's 50% numbers.)

@BigTech0 - the "COMMENT" link under the main article does not let you comment.  Very intuitive, that.

If you click "Post Message" under any existing comment, that lets you post a reply to the main article (ie a top-of-thread comment). "Reply" as you've found, lets you reply to an existing comment.

For an engineering site, I sometimes wonder who dreamed this up (and what he was smoking) :-)

in this joke, which many of you have probably heard, but here goes.

A researcher investigating the humor of puns uses 10 sample puns to see if they can make each subject laugh but, for the most part, no pun in 10 did.

Punctuate the following words: "fun fun fun worry worry worry".

@Betajet: "Never underestimate a man's ability to underestimate a woman".

I always liked that demonstration of how punctuation can change the meaning of a sentence:

A woman, without her man, is nothing.

A woman: without her, man is nothing.

 

Another one that makes me laugh is:

A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle

Excellent!  As V.I. Warshawski says: "Never underestimate a man's ability to underestimate a woman".

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
