'Econ', is quite common in (my parts of) the US when referring to the academic discipline. Yes, it's an abbreviation, but one in such widespread use that it has almost by default become a word on it's own, and over here is usually written without a period. (Full stop for all y'all on t'other side o' the pond.).

Source? I was an econ major.
Same here. "Econ" is widely used in Australia to refer to an economics class or to the course of study for an economics degree.

Never heard of "ling", though.

Re: Repertoire of terrible jokes [I challenge you]

I heard a major new study recently found that humans eat more bananas than monkeys.
It's true.
I have never eaten a monkey.

Maybe it's changed, or you're from another part of Australia to me ... but when I was at uni in Sydney a Bachelor of Economics was a B.Ec. and sometimes ecs for economics. Never heard of Econ (or even Econ.).

Agree about the "official" abbreviation BEc (or B.Ec.) (and I'm from the same part of Australia as you ). I mentioned that "Econ" was widely used for economics classes and courses of study, such as this one at Sydney Uni, and many others at universities around Australia. Granted, it's not used much outside the academic setting.

Re: Repertoire of terrible jokes [I challenge you]

Today I decided to go visit my childhood home.
I asked the residents if I could come inside because I was feeling nostalgic,
but they refused and slammed the door in my face.
My parents are the worst.

Re: Repertoire of terrible jokes [I challenge you]

Board Meeting
----------------------------------------

All of the 10 Senior Members of the Board of Directors of the Company were called into the Chairman’s office one by one......until only Bob, the junior-most Member, was left sitting outside.

Finally it was his turn to be summoned.......

He entered the Office to find the Chairman and the ten other Directors seated around the Board Table.

He was invited to join them, which he did.

As soon as he had sat down, the Chairman turned to Bob, looked at him squarely in the eye, and in a stern voice , asked.....

"Bob, have you ever slept with. Mrs. Foyt, my Secretary ?"

"Oh, no sir, positively not," Bob replied.

"Are you absolutely sure ?” asked the Chairman.

"Honest, I’ve never been close enough. to even touch her !”


"You’d swear. to. that ?"

"Yes, I swear. I’ve never slept with Mrs. Foyt anytime, anywhere.”

"Good Then YOU FIRE HER from the Job. We Can't..!"

Re: Repertoire of terrible jokes [I challenge you]

A downtown bar has recently replaced it bartender with a robot.
1st guy walks in and orders a drink. Robot asks him his IQ. 140 he answers so the robot discusses astrophysics with him.
2nd guy comes in and orders a drink. What's you IQ he inquires. 120 says the man, so the robert discusses world politics.
Finally the 3rd type walks in and orders a beer. What's you IQ asks the robot. Can't exactly remember says the guy. Think it was around 80 back in school. So the robot asks, so you voted for Trump again?
