    Understand it … just fail to see the humour.

    That’s because you need to get more geeky.

    The key is infinity of mathemeticians and decreasing fractions of beer quaffing will never exceed two beers. I think it’s a good joke, but because you have to think…then the punchline response is ‘oh.’

    Actually, it doesn’t make sense the infinite series 1/n diverges => two cups of bear is not going to be enough for the infinitely many mathematicians. If they had instead ordered 1, 1/4, 1/9, … (i.e 1/n^2) cups of bear resp, then the joke would make sense.
