    Just these 2 below that I do not get or understand ( The rest I understand / get ) :

    * What is the contour interval around western
    Europe? Zero because all the Poles are in
    eastern Europe.


    * Two kittens are on a roof but both of the are
    sliding down. which one falls off first? The
    one with the greatest mew.

    The kittens one is referring to the coefficient of friction, often quoted with the greek letter mu (mew). However, the joke should read that the one with the smallest mew falls off first, since that indicates the one that is the most slippery. </pedantry>

    Loved the Seuss poem, btw!

    Or one I came across recently:

    I like jokes about UDP, but I don't care if you get them.

    I prefer jokes about TCP. I just keep telling them until people understand.

    Alternatively:

    "Can I tell you a TCP joke?"
    "Please tell me a TCP joke"
    "OK, I will tell you a TCP joke"
    "I have understood this TCP joke"

    and

    "I'd tell you a UDP joke but you might not get it."
