Comic 899 - Number Line

There once was a seamstress from Devon
Who wanted to count up to seven.
Her number line got
Tangled up in a knot
And she skipped straight from four to eleven.

Original comic here.

EDIT: Here's another one!

If there's one thing that sets my brain whirring
It's zero point nine nine recurring:
It can't equal unity
And yet shows immunity
To my efforts at proof. What's occurring?


  1. Please do not think me absurd
    Be assured I'm a man of my word
    In the Orthodox math
    Nought to four as a path
    Traverses one two three and gird

  2. Another AnonymousJune 19, 2011 4:43 am

    A young mathematician from Malibu
    Was tired of constantly having to
    Tell apart pi and e
    So she called them both three
    or 2.9299372.

  3. Ooh, I like that. Good use of polysyllabic half-rhyme - reminds me of Tinie Tempah.
