I bet ye olde Peeps from around 30,000BC (or 35,000BC, depending on which Google or Wiki God I listen to) are a bit embarrassed right now.
They put a lot of effort into creating the number system. Which shows, because it stuck, it grew on us, and we all use it to this very day.
Only, they forgot a number.
It is pronounced 'woof' but with an M. Please don’t make the error of saying 'moo' like a cow. Because that would just be ridiculous….
Mstr3 is clearly going to be the smartest being of all time, since he picked up on their ancient error.
Me: Mstr3, how many times have I told you to get your finger out of your nose?
Mstr3: Umm….moofteen times
Me: Mstr3, how many pieces of carrot did you eat?
Me: Really. So, none then?
Mstr3: No, I really did. I really really did. I had moofteen carrots.
Me: Mstr3, shower time
Mstr3: I don’t wannaaaaaaaaaaa
Me: Just 5 minutes, it won’t take long
Me: If you have a shower I’ll let you watch LazyTown for 5 minutes
Mstr3: No. Moofteen minutes
Me: …..Little mini bastard…..
Me: Mstr3, where are the kiddy vitamins?
Mstr3: I ate them
Me: WHAT?!?! HOW MANY DID YOU EAT?!!??!
Mstr3: Only moofteen
Me: OMG OMG OMG
Me: I love you Mstr3
Mstr3: I love you too Mummy
Me: I love you lots and lots and lots
Mstr3: Yeah I love you moofteen
So I’m thinking moofteen is the mathematical equivalent of a shitload.
And here endeth the lesson.
On to other things....
