The Flood is over and the ark has landed. Noah lets all the animals out and says, "Go forth and multiply."
A few months later, Noah decides to take a stroll and see how the animals are doing. Everywhere he looks he finds baby animals. Everyone is doing fine
except for one pair of little snakes. "What's the problem?" says Noah.
"Cut down some trees and let us live there," say the snakes.
Noah follows their advice. Several more weeks pass. Noah checks on the snakes again. He finds lots of little snakes, and everybody is happy. Noah
asks, "Want to tell me how the trees helped?"
"Certainly," say the snakes. "We're adders, so we need logs to multiply."
For non-geeks who may not get this joke:
Before calculators, logarithms (affectionately known as LOGs) were used to perform complicated multiplications. Instead of multiplying the numbers,
you ADD their LOGS. Hence, adders need logs to multiply.
