Fun With Physicists

You know it is going to be a good day when your British alternative rock station plays some Run DMC on the way into work. Though they did follow it up with some Arctic Monkeys to get back to more modern times....Subsequently, the sun is also shining. Let's see how long it takes for work to burst my happy little bubble....After a quick email to my new physicist friend explaining how big a hit the neutron joke was, he sent along another. Whoever said rocket scientists don't have a sense of humor?

A doctor, actor, and physicist are debating the question of whether it is better to have a wife or a mistress:

Doctor: Clearly a wife. The stability, maturity of the relationship, it's the best way to be.

Actor: Obviously a mistress. It offers freedom, keeps you young.

Physicist: You must have both. That way, on a Saturday night, you can tell your wife you are with your mistress, tell your mistress you are with your wife, and go into the lab to get some work done.

I also got this one from a friend of a friend physicist in California. Apparently I'm only two degrees of separation away from some wicked smart people.

Two atoms walk down the street. One walks into a pole and shakes his head...
He says "i think i just lost an electron and become an ion''
The other one says "are you sure?"
"Yes" he says "...i'm positive".

You can laugh or you can groan. Either way, I know you are smiling. Tucker on the other hand keeps giving me the grumpy look when I tell him the jokes.
