When our programming prof demonstrated what happens if you increase the spatial and temporal resolution of the spectrogram, he says "The plot thickens!"

I don't think he realised it himself.  :laugh:

I just got the image of a midwife and a woman giving birth swinging towards each other on a trapeze - when they meet, the midwife pulls the baby out. The knife juggler is standing on the floor and cuts the umbilical cord with a a knifethrow.

Is it cold in here?

I just came across this on Wikipedia. I really am not sure how I got into the article on metahumor.

There once was an X from place B,
Who satisfied predicate P,
The X did thing A,
In a specified way,
Resulting in circumstance C.
