“How much is 27%?” the kid asked.
“As much as it sounds,” his friend replied.
“How much is that?”
“It depends on the total.”
“The total what?”
“The total thing you want the 27% of.”
In the waiting room, the dialog went on and on, people getting impatient. Suddenly, a man stood up and showed his four-fingered hand, lifting one finger.
“See this? This is more or less 27%.”
“Oh,” the kid said, “27% is a finger! You should’ve said so in the first place!”
The friend rolled his eyes.
And… Just for the record, it was not THAT finger!
