another bad philosophy joke

Another bad philosophy joke, this one courtesy the memorial blog for Mike Ford.

Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Goedel, and Noam Chomsky walk into a bar. (The bar tender is still polishing Descartes’ glass.)
They look around, and Heisenberg says, “Is this some kind of joke? And if it’s a joke, is it funny?!”
Goedel answers, “In order to know if the joke is funny, we would have to be outside the joke, but we’re inside the joke, so we can’t tell if it’s funny.”
But Chomsky says, “Oh, it’s funny; you’re just not telling it right.”
