For no other reason than I am bored, here are some songs by The Mathletes. The songs are usually intensely nerdy electro-pop songs, and while Joe Mathlete claims that making music requires only “a rudimentary grasp of the English language,” his songs go far beyond that. Otherwise, the songs wouldn’t be so nerdy and awesome. As he sings on I Hate Math, “You’re a functions graph and I’m an asymptote / We will never touch, but we’ll come awful close.” That is both the most hilarious AND the most heartbreaking lyric in the history of existence. Perhaps to balance this out, his song Pinocchiobot is about his desire to become a toaster oven. He has good reasons for it, as well, but I will leave their discovery up to you! In addition, he explains Marmaduke in his aptly-named blog Joe Mathlete Explains Today’s Marmaduke. It is hands down the most hilarious webpage I’ve ever read, so don’t read it in a library or you just might get kicked out for laughing too much.
