    Default Newfie Math Test

    A Newfie wants a job, but the foreman won't hire him until he passes a little math test.
    Here is your first question, the foreman said. "Without using numbers, represent the number 9."
    "Without numbers?" The Newfie says? "Dat is easy." And proceeds to draw three trees.

    "What's this?" the foreman asks.
    "Have you ain't got no brain? Tree and tree plus tree makes 9" says the Newfie.

    "Fair enough," says the foreman. "Here's your second question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99."
    The Newfie 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 foreman scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?"
    "Each of da trees is dirty now. So, it's dirty tree, and dirty tree, plus dirty tree. Dat makes 99."

    The foreman is getting worried that he's going to actually have to hire this Newfie , so he says, "All right, last question. Same rules again, but represent the number 100."
    The Newfie 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 foreman looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think that represents a hundred!"
    The Newfie leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree and whispers, "A little dog come along and poop by each tree.
    So now you got dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd, which makes ONE HUNDRED!"

    The Newfie is now the new foreman.

    I did the math and came to the conclusion that some people just can´t take a joke!
