Let me count the ways....

"What's a 'prime' number?"

"That means it doesn't invite other numbers over to ruin the carpet, eat all their burritos, and plug up the toilet."

"What? Are you still bitter about that?"

"Prime numbers aren't divisible by anything but themselves and one. Unless you use a really big knife. Like this."

".... I'd better leave now."

LOL Unexpected turn of events from a math question. love it.

Janna said...

G-man: LOL. There totally needs to be a "Colon Blow" salsa somewhere. :)

dustus: Yay for unexpected turns of events! Unless they happen in real life and are lousy. But other than that, yay!

This messy guest wasn't ready for prime time. Loved this one.

izzy said...

Monkey Man said...

Food AND math. How do you do it.

Better yet, use Occam's Razor!

Jannie Funster said...

There's a Colon Blow hotdog, so why not salsa?

Janna with banana, I've said it before but I'll say it again, you are in possession of one weird-ass brilliant mind -- and I LOVE your quirly fun writing.

Brilliant, as usual.
I was Going to say you were my heroine, but next thing you know the DEA will come knocking, so it's the generic hero.

Mama Zen said...

Sounds like me teaching math!

You always crack me up!

nonamedufus said...

I hate when those other numbers plug up the toilet. It makes me six.

Shanae Branham said...

Very clever. I have always been suspicious of prime numbers and now I know why!

Jingle said...

brilliant,
love your 55.

primes are mixed with even numbers and more..
Glad to see you distinct them in your 55.

5 is a prime number, 11 is one too, but not 55...

Janna said...

Brian: I like to play with math, to lull it into a false sense of security.

avoidtheclap: Or at least the guest should have unplugged the toilet, right? :o

izzy: It's curious how often numbers and trouble go hand in hand....

MonkeyMan: I owe it all to the burritos.

Bubba: LOL!!

Jannie: Yay!

DaOldMan: Just as long as I'm not anyone's crack...

MamaZen: It's always best to teach math with a really big knife, just in case the numbers forget who's boss.

nonamedufus: Plus it makes it hard to eat "pi" afterward.

Shanae: It all makes sense now, doesn't it? :)

Jingle: Yes, that's right! :) Two is the only even prime number. I bet it feels lonely sometimes.
