A Norwegian Math Test --- This only works for those
in Minnna soda or Viskonsin…don’t cha know!
Ole, a Norwegian fella wants a job, but the foreman
doesn’t want to hire him, so he says he won't hire him until he passes a
little math test. Here is your first question, the foreman said.
'Without using numbers, represent the number 9.'
'Witout numbers?' The Norwegian says, 'Dat's easy.'
and proceeds to draw three trees.
What's this?' the boss asks.
Vot! You got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make
nine,' says the Norwegian.
'Fair enough,' says the boss. 'Here's your second
question. Use the same rules, but this time represent the number 99.'
The Norwegian stares into space for a while, then
picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each
tree. 'Dar ya go!'
The boss scratches his head and says, 'How on earth
do you get that to represent 99?'
'You must be from Iowa …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 Norwegian, so he says, 'All right, last
question. Same rules again, but represent the number 100.'
The Norwegian fella 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, 'Dar ya go! Von hundred!'
The boss looks at the attempt. 'You must be nuts if
you think that represents a hundred!'
The Norwegian winces and shakes his head…UFF-DAH…you
must be a Finlander from Iowa…he leans forward and points to the marks
at the base of each tree and says, 'A little dog come along and pooped
by each tree. So now you got dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a
turd, and dirty tree and a turd, and dat makes von hundred !!
So, ven do I start?
