Math problem for today

Find the total number of space aliens that tried to contact us last Thursday.
Multiply by the square root of the number of times I have avoided going into Wal-Mart because the parking lot was swarming with crazed motorists who were snatching up the best parking spots like hyperactive frogs at a flying insect buffet.
Add the number of salads eaten by professional wrestlers last week.
Subtract twelve.

Hmmm...I come up with 158; but take out the salad part and I get 144 which is a gross count; which is, well...gross. Then again my count on aliens could be wrong...

Well, if you subtract 12 then the answer is zero because normally the answer would always be 12..duh!

How did you know the aliens tried to contact me last Thursday?

Subby: Be sure to count ALL the aliens. Even Tom Cruise.

Jeff: I like blueberry pi the best!

Grace: I like your determination. :)

MikeWJ: One of them is a double agent, and they told me everything in exchange for a few cows and a Twinkie.

I think this is beyond new math... it's like new wave math.
