“Where are mathematicians buried?"/"The symmetry.”

A math riddle is:

Q: Where are mathematicians buried?
A: The symmetry.

“Symmetry” sounds like “cemetery.” The joke has been cited in print since at least 2007.

My favourite joke at the moment:

Where are mathematicians buried?
>The Symmetry!

Ha ha ha…
Happy holidays to all
