Descartes goes into a bar.

Zed told me this one.

Descartes walks into a bar and sits down. The bartender asks if he'd like to see the late-night menu. Descartes says, "Uh, I don't think..." and disappears.

There's another Descartes joke to which I remember the punchline AND NOTHING ELSE. Please please please ask Zed if he knows how the rest of the joke goes?

The punchline goes something like this,

"That's what happens when you put Descarte before de horse."

(Everybody is supposed to laugh at this point, but they don't if that's the only bit you remember!)

Happening here totally by accident, but here's your joke:

There was this magnificent mathematical horse. You could teach it arithmetic, which it learned with no difficulty, algebra was a breeze, it could even prove theorems in euclidean geometry, but when you tried to teach it analytic geometry, it wouldrear back on its hind legs, kick ferociously neigh loudly and make violent head motions in resistance.

The moral of this story is that you can't put Descartes before the horse.
