I'm so glad this story wasn't about Sanitation Department Boulevard.

(Also, "The Aristocrats!")

Quick, too google maps! We need to find the intersection of Grapefruit & Vodka and stake it out!

Anything divided by itself is one. Subby fails arithmetically.

I was told there would be no math questions.

You could argue that the split grapefruit multiplied the problem, therefore subby would be quite correct

Submitter fails.

I would've gone with a Yo Dawg.

This could've been a good ironic tag argument.

Using normal mathematics, absolutely, but such things become very uncertain when dealing with Base Grapefruit mathematics. If my calculations are correct, using Base Grapefruit, then Grapefruit over Grapefruit should equal Grapefruit.

I was thinking subby meant:

story = crash / (Grapefruit - grapefruit)

grapefruit/(grapefruit blvd) = 1/blvd

Tired, yes. Both equally appropriate? No.

And a grapefruit looks kind of like a zero, filled in. Unless you cut it in half, in which case it looks like the spokes on a wheel, or cut it in sections in which case it looks like a wheel with spokes, or you shoot it with a shotgun, in which case it looks like a splattered mess. I'm sure there are other things it resembles under other circumstances.

Operating on the theory that subbies are never wrong, I'm going to assume Grapefruit=0.

We can further conclude, using the universal constant for grape of 1, that fruit=0.

Grape*Fruit=0
1*0=0

We now have enough information to solve the rest of the problem.

scalpod: Anything divided by itself is one. Subby fails arithmetically.


If poster 'Scalpod' says, "Anything divided by itself is one. Subby fails arithmetically," and grapefruit/grapefruit=0, then Scalpod must be a poopyhead.

We will, for sake of simplicity, round this equation off, since both poopy and head are irrational numbers. I don't want to bore you with all the math, but it looks to me like it comes out roughly to 42, which, as we all know, is the square root of 1764, which is the same year the Sugar Act was passed, which makes this proof totally sweet. St. Louis was also founded in 1764, which has no baring on the proof, but it's a nice way to round out the discussion since the Cardinals just won the World Series.

No ducks were hurt in the filming of this post.

Honest.

Okay, maybe one.

Do you ever wonder, in some alternate universe, where grapefruit/pineapple=1, if maybe the sharks tried to jump Fonzi?

Shouldn't that cancel each other out?

I was eating grapefruit when I read this headline!

I accidentally 40 lbs. of grapefruits. Is this dangerous?

randomdevice: grapefruit/(grapefruit blvd) = 1/blvd


Thereby making all drivers and passengers null.

After the train hit the truck, there was zero grapefruit left worth eating. Therefore subby is entirely correct.

What's with street names? There's no Indians on Indian Drive and no grapefruit on Grapefruit Way.

Wait? What?

I stand corrected.
