This is the best joke I have heard about faster-than-light neutrinos:
The bartender says “Sorry, we don’t serve faster than light neutrinos”.
A faster than light neutrino walks into a bar.

Is that joke evidence of time travel?
Terrific joke! I laughed out loud and then read it.
See Underbelly Sept. 24 with critical exegesis and undocumented bonus limerick:
Your reporting on it only now, suggesting very recent first hearing of the joke, suggests that there are still some things that travel considerably more slowly than light.
It’s obvious that this is the joke’s first posting and others were just repeating it at an earlier time.
Actually, I posted it before I heard it.
This makes it even better:
For this to be the *best* joke, you would have to’ve heard at least two other FTL-neutrino jokes. Which I really hope you haven’t.
Surely for this to be the *best* joke, he only has to eventually hear at least two other FTL-neutrino jokes?
It’s better than the two I am going to hear for the first time tomorrow.
