Physics Jokes

Cosmic Variance has a Bad Physics Jokes post. I had to add a comment with my favorote, which I reproduce here:

There once was a theorist who was hired by the American Dairy Council to help optimize their milk production (because, you know, physicists are smart).

She goes around to the pastures, to the milking stations, looks at the scaling of the distribution networks (definitely not scale-free), etc. After months, she has a presentation prepared. The auditorium is packed. She puts up her first slide and says "First, assume a spherical cow...."
