I got a fridge for my daughter's birthday.
I can't wait to see her face light up when she opens it...

How do you confuse an archaeologist?.
Give them a used tampon and ask what period its from........
As we're on that subject - just a bit raunchier:

Q: How do black girls from the deep South know if they're pregnant?
A: When they pull their tampons out all the cotton is picked.

And to feed the misogynist in me:

Q: What are women useful for?
A: Carrying sperm from the bedroom to the bathroom.

2 hands = 5 +5 = 10 fingers
2 feet = 5 + 5 = 10 toes
10 fingers and 10 toes = 20
80 = 4 x 20
It was the method in France to count sheep, prior the revolution
After the revolution, the New régime maintained this method of counting

Heard that before to explain the quirky stuff, but I've never really bought that story because it gets sort of f@cked up after 70 (e.g. the problem starts before 80).

They appear to have run out of ideas for "new words for numbers" after 70 until you get to 100, and just stuck bits onto previously used numbers to make it fit like a charity shop jigsaw puzzle with missing parts.

Perhaps 75% Absinthe had a role to play a the time? Tchin-tchin... 🥃
