Today, I realized that maths problems are the only place where someone can buy 60 watermelons and no one wonders why.

@ColinTheMathmo For a restaurant, maybe...

@ColinTheMathmo It's also the only place where you can buy 12*5 of the exact same type of watermelon at the same location and relative point in time, without complications

"I'd like 12 watermelons."

"OK, let me show you where they are."

"Oh, and 12 more."

"OK."

"and,"

@QContinuumHypothesis Oh, excellent find! Do we think that's the original?

@ColinTheMathmo I’m not sure. We should search Lexis Nexis or something.

@ColinTheMathmo the comic is on my advisors door. I don’t know if the joke is older than that.

A Mastodon instance for maths people. The kind of people who make $\pi z^2 \times a$ jokes.
