“There are three kinds of mathematician: those who can count and those who can’t”

"There are three types of people in the world: Those who can count and those who can’t” is a joke that has been printed on many images.

“‘There are three kinds of people: Those who can count and those who can’t count,’ faxes Bob Bison of Arlington” was printed in the Fort Worth (TX) Star-Telegram on September 8, 1990. Authorship is uncertain.

“There are three kinds of mathematician, those who can count and those who can’t” was printed in the Gazette - Australian Mathematical Society (1991). “There are, it says, three kinds of mathematician. Those who can count. And those who can’t” was printed in The Guardian (London, UK) on December 30, 1994.

“There are three kinds of people: those who can count, and those who cannot. George Carlin” was posted on Twitter by @_cricket78 on April 10, 2014. American stand-up comedian George Carlin (1937-2008) if frequently credited, but there is no evidence that he ever said it.
