The Italian Job

An Italian workman wants a job, but the foreman won't hire him until he
passes a little math test "Here's your first question," the foreman said.

"Without using numbers, represent the number 9."

"Without numbers?" the Italian says, "Datsa easy." and he proceeds to draw
three trees.

"What's this?" the boss asks.

"Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree makea nine," says the Italian.

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

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

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

"Each of da trees isa dirty now. So, it's dirty tree, and dirty tree, and
dirty tree. Datsa a 99."

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

The Italian 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 Italian leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree
and says, "A little doga come along and poopa by eacha tree. So now you gota
dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd,
dat makea one hundred.
