    Default Jamaican Math Test

    A Jamaican man wants a job, but the foreman won't hire him until he passes
    a little math test.

    Here is your first question, the foreman Said. "Without using numbers,
    represent the number 9."

    "Without numbers?" The Jamaican says, "Dat is easy." And proceeds to draw
    three trees.




    "What's this?" the boss asks

    "Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make nine," says the
    Jamaican.



    "Fair enough," says the boss. "Here's your second question. Use the same
    rules, but this time the number is 99."

    The Jamaican stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that
    he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. "here you go."



    The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to
    represent 99?"

    "Each of da trees is dirty now. So, it's dirty tree, and dirty tree, and
    dirty tree. Dat is 99."

    The boss is getting worried that he's going to actually have to hire this
    Jamaican, so he says, "All right, last question. Same rules again, but
    represent the number 100."

    The Jamaican stares into space some more, then he picks up the picture
    again and makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, "Ere you
    go. One hundred."



    The boss looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think that
    represents a hundred!"


    The Jamaican leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree
    and says, "A little dog come along and crap by each tree. So now you got
    dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd,
    which makes one hundred."



    "So, when I start?"
