Life is Often Too Seriously Taken, so for that reason, I'm going to post a silly poem from time-to-time. These first several will each be taken from a small booklet entitled, Lighten Up! 100 Funny Little Poems, compiled and edited by Bruce Lansky.

Chocolate Calculator

I received this via an e-mail "forward." Thanks, Dixie.


Have Fun!

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would most like to enjoy eating chocolate (more than once but less than 10).

2. Multiply this number by 2. (Be bold!)

3. Add 5.

4. Multiply it by 50 - I'll wait while you get the calculator! ;-)

5. If you have already had your birthday this year, add 1759. If you haven't, add 1758.

6. Now subtract the four-digit number of the year of your birth.

7. You should now have a three-digit number. The first digit of this number was your original number (the number of times you would like to consume chocolate per week).

The next two numbers indicate your age! (Yes - your age!) ;-)

I've been told that this year (2009) is the only time this will work.

(If you are inspired, perhaps you can tell if this is a true fact or not.)
