    An Italian man wants a job, but the foreman won't hire him until
    he passes a little math test "Here's your first question,"
    the foreman said.


    "Without using numbers, represent the number 9."


    "Without numbers?" the Italian says, "Data easy."
    and he proceeds
    to draw three trees.


    "What's this?" the boss asks.


    "Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree makea nine,"
    says the Italian.


    "Fair enough," says the boss. "Here's your second
    question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99."


    The Italian stares into space for a while, then picks up the
    picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree.
    "Ere you go."


    The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you
    get that to represent 99?"


    "Each of da trees isa 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 Italian, so he says, "All right, last question. Same
    rules again, but represent the number 100."


    The Italian 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, "Ere you go. One hundred."


    The boss looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think
    that represents a hundred!"


    (You're going to love this one!!!)


    The Italian leans forward and points to the marks at the base of
    each tree and says, "A little doga came along and crapa by
    eacha tree. So now you gota dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a
    turd, and dirty tree and a turd, data makea one hundred. So, when
    la start?

    Ya I know, true only if they're treated as fractions, I was saying what if they were in decimals.

    A turd can't be accurately represented as a decimal.

    You can't, with complete accuracy, depict one third (or in the joke, a turd) as a decimal.

    So stop with the trying to be clever, thicko.
