# Thread: integration joke type problem

1. ## integration joke type problem

.

$\displaystyle \int\dfrac{1}{cabin}dcabin$

2. ## Re: integration joke type problem

well... it's pretty obvious so I'll just groan

ps. Abe Lincoln was born in one he helped build!

greg1313, this usually given as $\displaystyle\int_1^{\text{cabin}} {{x^{ - 1}}dx}$

I think his version is good.

However greg, if you post another groaner like that I'm going to give you fifty lashes with a wet textbook.

Mine was meant to be an indefinite integral so that the answer would be

log cabin + C

and possibly be read as "log cabin by the sea."

People who work in integration theory generally don't use the useless "C".

It's "useless" to you. There are a number things of mathematics that are "useless"
to you, but you seek to impose what is "useless" to you on everyone
else. Imposing yourself is useless.

All that aside, the "+ C" is given for the added opportunity
to embellish the answer when "translating" it for this joke puzzle.

Frankly I'd drop the C. Oceans are filled with fish so when you go out to C you run into a lot of fish poop.
