The New Math


My wife and I stopped by an ice cream shop (remaining nameless) for some ice cream this past weekend. I drove up to the window and placed my order, “I would like a 1/2 gallon of vanilla soft serve please.”

To which the young lady responded, “I’m sorry sir, we no longer sell 1/2 gallons.”

“You mean I can’t order a 1/2 gallon?”

“That’s right sir.”

“There’s no way I can get 1/2 gallon of ice cream?”

“That’s correct, sir. We no longer sell 1/2 gallons.”

“Do you sell quarts?”

“Yes, sir we do.”

“May I order 2 quarts?”

“Yes, …please pull forward.”

Must be that new math…

    I was wondering how long it was going to take you to post a new blog…DQ has been “not selling 1/2 gallons” for a long time.

    six of one plus half-a-dozen (one half of a dozen)of the other does not add up to a Baker’s dozen…also in logic design (Boolean algebra): 1+1=1 (T+T=T)…math is great..bring the blog around to mathematics (LOL)
