We were inundated with responses to our call for the Twitterati to share their favourite maths jokes using the hashtag #mathsjokes. Some were obscure, some were awful, but some, we're sure, would have given Einstein a fit of the giggles. Here are a few of our favourites.

Hired an odd-job man to do 8 jobs for me. When I got back, he'd only done jobs 1, 3, 5 and 7.
