I found this terribly amusing. My personal favorite:

Gauss never runs out of room in the margin.

Nice. I think "the location and momentum of a particle are what Gauss say they are" was my favourite.

By a strange coincidence, I was talking to someone about Fermet's Last Theorem just this morning. He had never heard of it, or of the story, so the above was particularly timely.

My own contribution:

Gauss can count the members of a Cantor set.

What about Gauss can let epsilon be less than zero?

Imaginary numbers become real when Gauss squints at them.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
