Jokes and thinking

I saw these 3 jokes appended to an email. I liked them, not because they are belly-laughing but because they do that thing of all great jokes – go lateral of the subject and come up with a very different way of looking at it. These are not the jokes that none too subtly hide an aggression. These are jokes that evoke the expansion of mind toward solving difficult problems

  1. The roundest knight at King Arthur’s round table was Sir Cumference.
  2.  The butcher backed up into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his  work.
  3. To write with a broken pencil is pointless.
