If there’s one big misconception about geeks by non-geeks, it’s probably that we don’t have a sense of humor. Of course geeks love to laugh. Who doesn’t? It’s just that the things they find funny, we don’t. And the things we do find funny, they probably don’t understand. In short, we just have a different sense of humor, and I obviously like our brand of better!
Since we all need some humor in our lives, I thought that I’d just share some of my favorite images and cartoons that I encountered this year. Some might make you smile, some might not. I do hope it does inspire you to look for more fun in your life though and to remember to squeeze in a laugh at least once a day. Here’s the list, and here’s to another year of laughs!
Schrodinger’s Cat Wanted
What really made me laugh though was the blogger’s quote from the Big Bang Theory.
Sheldon: What do I have to say to bring this discussion to a speedy conclusion?
Leonard Hofstadter: Tell me whether or not I should go out with Penny.
Sheldon: Schrodinger’s cat.
Leonard Hofstadter: Wow, that is brilliant!
Sheldon: You sound so surprised.
