Here's a lil Italian Math for you:
An Italian man wants a job, but the foreman won't hire him until he
passes a little math test. "Here's your first question, " the foreman
"Without using numbers, represent the number 9."
"Without a numbers?" the Italian says, "Dat is easy." And he proceeds
to draw three trees
"What's this?" the boss asks.
"Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make nine, " says the
"Fair enough, " says the boss. "Here's your second question. Use the
same rules , but this time the number is 99."
The Italian stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture
that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree.
"Ere you go."
The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to
repr esent 99?"
"Each of da trees is dirty now. So, it's dirty tree, and dirty tree,
and dirty tree. Dat is 99."
The boss is getting worried that he's going to actually have to hire
this Italian, so he says, "All right, last question. Same rules again,
but represent the number 100."
The Italian stares into space some more, then he picks up the picture
again and makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, "Ere
you go. One hundred."
The boss looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think that
represents a hundred!"
(You're going to love this one!!!)
The Italian leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each
tree and says,
"A little dog came along and crap by each tree. So now you got dirty
tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd, dat
make one hundred.. So, when I start?"
