Mathematics Goes to the Movies
by Burkard Polster and Marty Ross
The clowns are trying to figure out how they can improve a stunt in which Dumbo has to jump off a high platform.
-This gives me an idea. Let’s raise the platform the elephant jumps off of.
-Yeah, if they laugh when he jumps 20 feet, they’ll laugh twice as hard when he jumps 40 feet.
-Yeah, that’s right, that’s right.
While drunk Dumbo blows a square bubble.
