25 – 5 = 20

This week there was a riddle in the newspaper that asked “How many times can you subtract five from twenty-five” and gave the answer as being once, because then you were subtracting from twenty and so on.

I disagree. I think you can subtract it as many times as you damn well please. Look:

25 – 5 = 20

25 – 5 = 20

25 – 5 = 20

25 – 5 = 20

25 – 5 = 20

25 – 5 = 20

I could go on all night. But since I don’t like math, I ain’t gonna.

I have begun saving up to go on a trip to London. I am not smart enough to go alone, though. I just don’t have anyone to go with. It makes me sad. I’m sad a lot.

In other news, I am now being monitored by aliens. They are spying on me through plant life. But it’s cool. They’re not insidious. They’re just really bored.a

  1. Hear now, you can’t just go around subtracting five from twenty-five as often as you like! There are laws and such. By-laws even! And those aren’t aliens spying on you–they’re my Elite Team of Spying on People Who Are Subtracting Five from Stuff: ETSPWASFS. That’s right, ETSPWASFS! Take care with all of your heedless subtraction. Or else!

  2. ETSPWASFS? I’m screwed. I did not realize the extent of this conspiracy until it was already too late.
