Just cos

Pythagoras only took short cuts

I'll name my son Mathematics.

Then I will be the Father of Mathematics. Get out of here, Pythagoras.

Why was Pythagoras not considered a suspect in murder case?

No knew what his angle was.

Pythagoras walks into a bar.

Pythagoras walks into a bar muttering, "If a right-angled triangle has a short side, X, a long side, Y, and hypotenuse, Z, then the square of Z must be equal to the sum of the square of X and the square of, erm... uh..."

[The barman says, "Y, the long face?"](/spoiler)

This joke may contain profanity. 🤔

Lawyers and their dogs.

In 1989 the University of Nottingham funded a study to explore the relationship that develops between people and their dogs.

Some of these words have an interesting derivation. A contemporary of Pythagoras was watching a parrot playing with some twigs, once upon a time. Although birds often play with twigs...

I met one of my beautiful Maths teacher yesterday

We greeted and she asked me directions to the State Bank of India. I told her make a 299 degrees turn and walk for 290 meters, then subtend the angle of X using Pythagoras Theorem and round it up to the nearest degree using tan ∆. From that point, draw a parabolic curve and walk 342 meters on its ma...
