Padres Say the Darnedest Things

OPC reader ECB shares with us the following story, which originated in the San Diego Tribune:

"Hey Greg, I've got one for you," Brian Giles said to new Padres teammate Greg Maddux last month. "Why was the mathematics book depressed?" Giles said. After the 333-game winner pondered the question for a few seconds, Giles slowly delivered the punch line. "Because it had a lot of problems inside."

Giles delivers more jokes here, although none of the rest are as funny as that one, which is actually pretty good, I think. Maddux doesn't laugh at any of them until Giles delivers his final zinger naked, which maybe Sarah Silverman ought to try.
