What can you do? It’s a doctor’s prescription.

The hourglass silhouette will never go out of fashion.

15 Bad maths points

By: Pexcel / Mental Health America (MHA).

Okay, let’s be honest: The best puns are always the bad ones. There’s just something odd about that awful crunchy pun. So let’s try a few.

Here are 15 bad math puns:

39. Why wasn’t the geometry teacher at school? Because it took a turn.

It’s a perfectly acceptable reason to take time off from work.

40. Why was the maths lesson so long? The teacher is repeatedly at an impasse.

It’s an occupational hazard, really. That’s what math will do to you.

41. How do you solve an equation? Multiply both sides by zero.

It’s the easiest way out: Multiply something by zero and you get zero. So you arrive at 0 = 0. But your math teacher probably won’t be very enthusiastic.

У нее никогда не должно должно быть скучных моментов!

46. How can I do seven in a row? Remove only from.

You can thank us later.

If you’re not very good at math, it can be hard to choose appropriate, funny, and relevant word games for conversation. But that doesn’t mean you should avoid them altogether! Just remember a few simple rules, and you’ll always have a good mathematical pun (or two, or maybe even three) up your sleeve – no matter the situation.

Here’s how to choose the best math puns:

1. Consider your negotiating partners

Before you make your favorite math joke, make sure the person you’re talking to understands it. To understand your pun, they should have some knowledge of math. So little kids or art students may not be the best audience for these types of jokes.

2. Make sure you know the math.

It’s not enough that the people around you are good at math. If you want to make math jokes, you need to understand the math behind the jokes! Otherwise, you run the risk of telling the joke wrong or not being able to explain it to others. Anyway, your pun won’t quite have the desired effect.

3. Using mathematical word games Economics

Here, more is less. A few well-chosen puns can work wonders and bring any conversation to life. However, if you do too much, you run the risk of annoying your audience. Besides, you can look like a connoisseur, and nobody wants that.
