tiler’s paradox

Tom and Dori over on Backup Brain are remodeling a bathroom. The tile guy’s name is Zeno. Which, of course, leads to this terrific obscure geek joke:

Dori: ‘When will Zeno the Tile Guy be here in the morning?’

Tom: ‘9:30. If he can actually arrive.’

(I got it from Backup Brain.)

One thought on “tiler’s paradox

  1. Oh, it’s worse than that — the guy’s name is actually Tom, which means that I can’t call him that because it’s too confusing. But given the way the tiling will *always* be done in three days (ref), I nicknamed him Zeno.

    But not to his face, of course.
