A guy in a bar leans over to the guy next to him and says, “Want to hear an actuary joke?”

The guy next to him replies, “Well, before you tell that joke, you should know that I’m 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, and I’m an actuary. The guy sitting next to me is 6’2″ tall, 225 pounds, and he’s an actuary. And the guy sitting next to him is 6’5″ tall, 250 pounds, and he’s an actuary. Now, do you still want to tell that joke?”

The first guy says, “No, I don’t want to have to explain it three times.”

A lawyer, an accountant and an actuary are discussing the merits of having a mistress or a wife.

The lawyer reckons it is better having a mistress, because the wife can take everything if you should come to a divorce.

The accountant reckons it is definitely better having a wife, from a taxation perspective.

The actuary reckons it is better having both, because when you are not with the wife, she thinks you are with the mistress, and when you are not with the mistress, the mistress thinks you are with the wife, and that way, you can spend more time at the office.

The actuary answered, “Easy, I just counted the number of legs and divided by four.”
