A Mathematician, a Physicist and an Engineer …

Sent this by a mathematician:

A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer were travelling through Scotland when they saw a black sheep through the window of the train.
"Aha," says the engineer, "I see that Scottish sheep are black."
"Hmm," says the physicist, "You mean that some Scottish sheep are black."
"No," says the mathematician, "All we know is that there is at least one sheep in Scotland, and that at least one side of that one sheep is black!"

Thank you Chris!

To which the farmer replied:
"Nonsense! If I catch the person who painted it black I'll paint him black..."
