The definition of "obscure" varies, but my definition is that if it presupposes specialized, or otherwise "uncommon knowledge", it'll work. If that doesn't apply, but you can make a case for it's being obscure or have told it and confused people, then tell it anyway.

I'll start it off with three of my tested favorites...

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Interrupting coefficient of friction.
Interrupting coefficien--
Mu!!

So, Rene Descartes is in a bar near closing time. The bartender asks him, "Would you like another drink?" Descartes replies, "I think not" and vanishes. After Descartes disappears, the bartender turns to Heisenberg. "Wow, did you see that?" the bartender asks, to which Heisenberg replies, "Possibly, but I can't be sure."

Why do Marxists only drink herbal tea?
Because proper tea is theft.

Hydrogen atom walks into a bar and says to the barman:
"Have you seen an electron? I've lost mine"
Barman:"You sure?"
H.A.: "I'm positive"

Yeah..sorry 'bout that.

  • the coefficient of friction is represented by the greek letter Mu or m.
  • "I think, therefore I am."-Rene Descartes, Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle.
  • I don't know much about Marxism or socialism but I think it's a play on property (or proper tea).
Does that help?

My brother told me this one.

In the physics department toilet someone has spray painted a large graffiti on the wall, it reads "Werner Heisenberg may have been here"

Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Gödel, and Noam Chomsky walk into a bar. Heisenberg turns to the other two and says, "Clearly this is a joke, but how can we figure out if it's funny or not?" Gödel replies, "We can't know that because we're inside the joke." Chomsky says, "Of course it's funny. You're just telling it wrong."

Curiosity may or may not have killed Schrödinger's cat.
