great gray owl

a joke

A joke by Serge Lang, who is one of my friend Tom's favorite mathematicians.

I quote:

Sign posted on the bulletin boards of the Engineering school at Oxford:

From: the Dean
To: the Faculty
Why do you always ask for such expensive equipment? Why can you not do like the mathematicians? All they ask for is pencils, paper and wastebaskets. Or like the philosophers? All they ask for is pencils and paper.
