The New Redneck Math
The school district of Gwinnett County, Georgia, has found a way to make arithmetic a lot more interesting. There’s no sense boring your students shitless with a bunch of dry, sterile numbers when you can inject some life into those tired old math problems.
You have a barroom full of inbred rednecks. The combined IQ of all of those rednecks is 100, and their average IQ is ten. Ready? How many rednecks are in the room?
Now isn’t this a lot more fun than “one hundred divided by ten is…[yawn]…”
Here’s another example:
There’s a bunch of teabaggers holding a spontaneous demonstration on behalf of Koch Industries. One third of the teabaggers are holding up misspelled signs. Sixty teabaggers have managed to spell everything right. How many misspelled signs are there?
Now THIS is the way to make that mundane old arithmetic more enjoyable; something for the kids to look forward to. And here’s a bonus question:
If Mitch McConnell has 57 chins, how many ounces of vodka can John Boehner glug down while he’s spreadeagled underneath a Wall Street lobbyist?
