Özet

The paper is on using jokes to introduce certain mathematical concepts. The main point is attracting the student to a discussion which is initiated with an anecdote. On the one hand some very common and familiar concepts are used to approach a problem, on the other hand it is pointed out that one can critisize almost everything mathematically. Some examples of jokes and their mathematical relations are also given.
