A joke I will never understand

One day, as we came into Latin class in school, there was a Greek lesson from a previous class on the board. The few students who also studied Greek cackled furiously as they edited the breathing marks, presumably to make the text unreadable. I remember much joking and disagreement about how best to mis-render the text.

I think this, more than anything, gives me insight into the reactions of others to technical jokes. It's knowing there's a joke there, laughing politely, but not understanding it.
