A demographer, a statistician, and a sociologist walk into a bar...

I'm busy preparing for an upcoming conference, so posts have been few and far between lately. For up-to-date information on data releases, trends, insights, cool infographics, and more: follow me on Twitter (@DataGeekB)

A few of my favorite demographer jokes, sociology jokes, statistics jokes, and programming jokes (in no particular order):

Q: Why are demographers exhausted?
A: They're broken down by age and sex.

There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, those who don’t understand binary, and those who didn’t expect this joke to be in base 3.

If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.

Birthdays are good for you – the more you have, the longer you live.

Did you hear about the programmer who got stuck in shower for a week? Blamed shampoo instructions: Lather, rinse, repeat.

There are 2 types of people in the world: those who can extrapolate from incomplete data...

Demographers are people who wanted to be accountants but lacked the personality for the job.

A musicologist says to her sociologist friend, “Our studies really aren't that different.”
“How so?” asks the sociologist.
Musicologist: “We both study cymbalic interaction.”

Old demographers never die. They just get broken down by age and sex.
