Pick a number between one and ten

Now Multiply that number by nine

If you have a two digit number add the digits. If you have a single digit number, keep it the same.

Now subtract five from your number

Pick the letter of the alphabet that matches with your number (a=1, b=2, c=3 etc,.)


Think of a Country that starts with your letter


Think of the second letter in that Country and think of an animal that begins with that letter


Think of the color of that animal (just think of the most common color)

It's a pretty neat joke in person. It is not absolute though. But if you do it to 10 people normally nine will think of that color.

Correct usually I use states. ( but I changed it because this is an international fourm) That leaves you with Delaware and E most people will pick elephant it's the first thing that comes to mind. Some people will pick a eagle or Egret.

But then again occasionally people know the answer and go out of their way to ruin the joke.

Lol. Are you following me?


The key to the whole joke are the first three questions. That always put's you on the number nine?

For the most part people who claim they came to Dominican republic or Dubai . Are the ones out to purposely ruin a good joke, but there are some exceptions.

I told this joke a couple years ago everyone laughed except one guy. He walked off and claimed he came to Dubai. So I asked him where Dubai was, we took his smart phone and he couldn't answer the question. He ended up the butt of jokes all night. Lol


Edit; I almost forgot. In place of an animal the idiot picked unicorn!!! Rotf

I have seen it that way, but I never seem to pick the results most do. I think it's like 97% that will pick the same thing? Being different seems to be the norm for a lot in my family, though. The country popped up because I as remembering watching the Miss Universe pageant as a child, and wondering where it was. It sounded very exotic to me back then.

We had discussions I've read your replies and I've noticed the way you think. I took no umbrage with your response, from speaking with you in the past. I naturally assumed you as one of the exceptions.

I gave you a star anyway for the effort. But even though the following video shows black it does play for six seconds please listen.

No worries, and I do know that some try and skew it. It's still fun, though! I love little tests, or jokes, or whatever you want to call them, like this.

Denmark, Eel, Brown.
My native language is spanish, so probably that had something to do with it. I had to think quite a while to come up with an animal starting with E. Yeah, im kinda slow I know.
