Hi Tom. The answer is yes and no. The caption was how to live on $15 per week and you are correct that the wife's beer and brandy is indeed the difference between the $15 per week goal and the listed total of $16.40. However if you add up the individual items, they don't add up to $16.40.


It seems that they were either a bit tipsy when adding it up, or they were not very good with math, or perhaps both!

Re: The New Joke Thread

The evolutionary roots of humour:
“Just kidding: the evolutionary roots of playful teasing” ~ by Johanna Eckert et al
Even before they learn to talk, human infants and toddlers know how to joke: They play games such as peek-a-boo and take whatever unexpected actions get a rise from adults. Now, it appears that nonhuman apes (like gorillas and orangutans) engage in similar behaviors, according to a paper published in Biology Letters.
Great apes display three types of playful teasing, described in preverbal human infants:
teasing with offer and withdrawal,
provocative non-compliance,
and disrupting others' activities.
