A mathematician confided
That the Moebius band is one sided
And you'll get quite a laugh
If you cut one in half
For it stays in one piece when divided

A mathematician named Klein
Thought the Moebius strip was divine
Said he, "If you glue
The edges of two,
You'll get a weird bottle like mine."

(mild sexism warning)

A burleycue dancer, a pip
Named Virginia, could peel in a zip
But she read science fiction
And died of constriction
Attempting a Moebius Strip.
