A Mathematician, a Biologist and a Physicist are sitting in a street cafe
watching people going in and coming out of the house on the other side
of the street.

First they see two people going into the house. Time passes.
After a while they notice three persons coming out of the house.

The Physicist: "The measurement wasn't accurate.".
The Biologists conclusion: "They have reproduced".
The Mathematician: "If now exactly 1 person enters the house then it will be
empty again."

An infinite amount of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first one orders a beer. The second one orders half a beer. The third one orders one quarter beer. The fourth one starts to order, but the bartender interrupts "Here's two beers; you lot can figure the rest out yourself."

Also, you gotta love the classics:
Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 ate 9!
