Did you know there are three types of mathematicians?

Which is of course quite similar to the well known:

There are 10 types of people - those who understand binary and those who don't.

Works on a both readings.

A physicist, a mathematician and a logician are on the train to Scotland. As they cross the border, the physicist looks out the window and sees a sheep.

"Look, the sheep in Scotland are black."

"No," says the mathematician, "one of the sheep in Scotland is black."

"Still not right," says the logician, "one side of one of the sheep in Scotland is black."
