Math Problem For Today

There are 39 people in a room which is 20' x 20', each occupying an equal amount of space. The surrounding air temperature is 98 degrees, and the humidity is 80%.
Arnold decides to make a smartass comment about Sally's recipe for salmon croquettes.
Assuming Arnold is 5' 11" 180 lbs, Will Sally decide to kill him with the shrimp fork or the salad fork?

It's a trick question. She'll use the desert spoon.

Asara said...

..but cousin, why a spoon?

Because it's dull, you twit, it'll hurt more!

I vote: melonballer
It's got a good heft in the handle, and you can really whack someone upside the head with one.

Not that I know from personal experience or anything....

Melon balling. Now there is something I think I can get into.

Later Y'all

Meloncutter: It's not me, I swear!

Marilyn: Except their dessert is one that requires a fork.... I think it's cheesecake....

Asara: LOL!! Love it! :)

Morgen: Oooh, nice idea... but I don't think Sally has a melonballer.

Meloncutter: So you want to be forked AND balled?

The salad fork, but the butler will do it, not Sally.
