3rd day of *math* humor, the continuing saga:

**How to prove that all odd numbers are prime ?**

Well, this problem has different solutions whether you are a:

**Coming soon:**

1 is prime, 3 is a prime, 4 is a feature, 5 is a prime, 6 is a feature, 7 is a prime, 8 is not yet implemented, 9 is our backwards compatibility module, ...

**Computational linguist:**

1 is an odd prime, 3 is an odd prime, 5 is an odd prime, 7 is an odd prime, 9 is a very odd prime, ...

**Software tech support operator:**

Well, we haven't had any reports of composite odd numbers... do you have the latest version of ZFC?

**Logician:**

Hypothesis: All odd numbers are prime

Proof:

If a proof exists, then the hypothesis must be true

The proof exists; you're reading it now.

From 1 and 2 follows that all odd numbers are prime

**Linguist:**

1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 aaah. I can make 9 a prime.

**Philosopher:**

Why don't we just call all the odd numbers prime and call all the prime numbers odd, that way all the odd numbers would be prime

**Philosopher (2):**

1 is prime. Hum, that's an interesting statement, I'll get one of my research students to look into that.

**Economist:**

Assume 9 is prime...

**Economist (2):**

2 is a prime, 4 is a prime.

**Economist (3):**

2 is even, 4 is even, 6 is even...

**Economist (4):**

1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is not prime. Look, the prime rate is dropping.

**Statistician:**

100% of the sample 5, 13, 37, 41 and 53 is prime, so all odd numbers must be prime.

**Mechanical Statistician:**

1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is an outlier, 11 is prime, 13 is prime...

**English major:**

What's a prime number ?

**Politician:**

What's a number ?

**Philosophy major:**

What is ?

**Athletic scholarship:**

What !?

**Mid-level manager:**

1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is... Who can I delegate this to ?

**Lawyer:**

1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, although there appears to be prima facie evidence that 9 is not prime, there exists substantial precedent to indicate that nine should be considered prime. The following brief presents the case for nine's primeness ...

**Salesman:**

1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, and with 9 you get five excellent primes for the price of three !

**Anthropologist:**

Prime or not, every number is unique. Take 9 for example...

**Liberal:**

The fact that nine is not prime indicates a deprived cultural environment which can only be remedied by a federally funded cultural enrichment program.

**Bush:**

What's nine got against being prime? I'll bet it won't allow the pledge of allegiance to be said in our schools either.

**Nixon:**

Put nine on the enemies list. I'm gonna get that number.

**New Yorker:**

1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is ... NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS!

**rec.humor poster:**

1 is prime, 1 is prime, 1 is prime, 1 is prime
