I seem to remember that the acronym RPN stood for something meaningful and appropriate. It's sarcastic pukes like me that bastardized the letters into Reverse Polish. I was in college for the height of that war, actually. The TI guys rode the HP guys unmercifully for their stupid backwards calculators, at least until HP came out with their graphing calculator. Then we were seriously pissed.

Speaking of calculators, I still use my TI-85 at work that I got in '95. Still works perfectly even tho I've forgotten now how to use at least half the functions it does.

The description "Polish" refers to the nationality of logician Jan Łukasiewicz, who invented (prefix) Polish notation in the 1920s.

It's not good for humans, but good in computer-programs.
A nice implementation for example is the Postscript printer language.

okay back to jokes…

There are two types of people in this world, those that think this is a strange Polish joke they don’t understand and those that appreciate the mathematical implications of the message…

Oldie but goodie.

It's the only type of cooking a real man will do.
When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are
put into motion:

1) The woman buys the food.

2) The woman makes the salad, vegetables and dessert.

3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along
with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the
man, who is lounging beside the grill, beer in hand.

4) The man places the meat on the grill.

5) The woman goes inside to organise the plates and cutlery.

6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He
thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer whilst he deals with
the situation.

7) The man takes the meat off the grill and hands it to the woman.

The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, serviettes,
sauces and brings them to the table.

9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

10) Everyone praises man and thanks him for his cooking efforts.

11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off."

And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no
pleasing some women!

That comic does speaketh the truth Corwin, and fits certain posters on our site. So thanks for the link and making me laugh a little.

I'm more partial to the following stick figure comic from a few years back.



And the following theory is always proven correct also.

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As
she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his
stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.
After a moment or two, the vet
shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles,
has passed away."
The distressed woman wailed,
"Are you sure?"
"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied
the vet..

"How can you be so sure?" she
protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or
something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned
around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later
with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on
in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his
front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from
top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and
shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the
head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he
returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also
delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat
back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and
strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the
woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most
definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and
produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she
cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"
The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it,
the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the
Cat Scan, it's now $150."
