I found this terribly amusing. My personal favorite:

Gauss never runs out of room in the margin.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

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.
