### Humor

A proof that everything can be described using mathematics: Recall that mathematics is the study of abstract relationships. Suppose towards a contradiction that there is some thing, say A, which is not describable in terms of math. "X is not describable in terms of Y" is a relationship between X and Y. We have then exhibited a relationship between A and math, which is a mathematical descriptor of A, contradicting our assumption that A was not amenable to such descriptions.
