There Was A Young Lady With Curves...?

Not exactly Robert Frost, but just for fun today a page of math limericks:

http://www.trottermath.net/humor/limricks.html

Here's a couple of samples, just to get you in the right mood:
"A graduate student at Trinity
 Computed the square of infinity.
    But it gave him the fidgets
    To put down the digits,
 So he dropped math and took up divinity."

"Archimedes, the well known truth-seeker,
      Jumping out of his bath, cried, "Eureka!"
        He ran half a mile,
        Wearing only a smile,
      And became the very first streaker."
