Scientists devise perfect joke formula

The mathematical equation for the perfect joke has been revealed by scientists.


The formula – c=(m+nO)/p – was worked out by Helen Pilcher and Timandra Harkness.


As well as being scientists, the pair are also stand-up comedians who make up the Comedy Research Project. They run this in collaboration with the Science Museum’s Dana Centre in London.
