Please add your favorite Frege joke in comments (or tweet @RrrichardZach with #fregejokes hashtag).

Doesn't have to be good. In fact, just any logic joke is fine.

Not a Frege joke but a logic joke.

Someone once built a time machine and took a modern textbook of logic back for Gottlob Frege to peruse. Frege commented "How do they comprehend this? There are no lines for them to follow!"

What's the difference between an algebraist and a logician? An algebraist can't tell the difference between "AND" and "OR".
