Here's a long one. Three guys stay at a hotel. They ask how much the room is. "It's $30". So they each pitch in $10. They head to the room. The manager tells the guy at the desk that it's only $25 and he needs to take the five bucks up to them. As he's going along he figures he can't divide $5 between the three guys so he is only gonna give them each a dollar and keep 2 for himself. So they each paid $9. So simple math here. 3 times 9 is 27, he keeps 2 for himself which equals 29. Wait where did the other dollar go?

-His horse is Friday.

-They each paid $9 including the $2 that the guy kept, so they paid $27 and the $3 that they got back equals $30. It was just nonsense math to add the $2 to $27.
