## An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar …

From Instapundit

Math joke from Anna, the bartender and civil engineering student: an infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first one tells the bartender he wants a beer. The second one says he wants half a beer. The third one says he wants a fourth of a beer. The bartender puts two beers on the bar and says “You guys need to learn your limits.”

I sent it to my department with a few minor modifications:

An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first one tells the bartender she wants a beer. The second one says he wants half a beer. The third one says she wants a fourth of a beer. The bartender puts two beers on the bar and says “You folks need to learn your limits.”

A convergent geometric progression series infinite in length. Nice.
