Let's try another one:

Yay math humor!

With the following assumptions:

0 x 1 = 0
0 x 2 = 0

The following must be true:

0 x 1 = 0 x 2

Dividing by zero gives:

0/0 x 1 = 0/0 x 2

Simplified, yields:

1 = 2

No, I know that the roof is missing and you can see the stars because the roof is missing. I just don't get the joke in not having a roof :)

Yes, but you can't divide by zero. Even when the numerator is zero.

111,111,111 * 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

Let's try this one.

x=y

multiply by x:
x^2 = xy

subtract y^2:
x^2 - y^2 = xy - y^2

Factor both sides:
(x+y)(x-y) = y(x-y)

Divide by (x-y):
x+y=y

x=y, so substitue y for x:
y+y=y
2y = y

divide by y and we get:
2=1

This can't happen in real life because if x=y, x-y=0 and you can't divide by zero.

Bernie was invited to his friend's home for dinner. Morris, the host, preceded
every request to his wife by endearing terms, calling her Honey, My Love,
Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin, etc.
Bernie looked at Morris and remarked, "That is really nice. After all these
years that you have been married, you keep calling your wife those pet names."

Morris hung his head and whispered, "To tell the truth, I forgot her name
three years ago."

As I lay in bed, staring up at the stars, I thought to myself: "Where the heck is the ceiling?".

Wasn't a riddle. It was a simple joke that doubled in purpose to also state why we don't divide by 0.
