Three Lunatics

“That’s impossible says the doctor. You are all nuts! You will just get lost and never come back”.

However, the three lunatics wouldn’t relent, until finally, exasperated, the doctor says “OK! If you can answer a simple question, I will sign the weekend pass”.

The doctor turns to the first lunatic and says “What’s three times three?”

The lunatic starts counting on his fingers, “3, 7, 19, 38? Is it 128?”

The doctor shakes his head and turns to the next lunatic.

“What’s three times three?”

The lunatic immediately shouts out, “WEDNESDAY!”

The doctor, beginning to get disgusted, turns to the last lunatic.

“What’s three times three?”

The lunatic thinks for a moment, and then asks for a pencil and a piece of paper.

That provided, she writes for some time furiously, and finally looks up and says “Nine”.

The doctor is amazed, but true to his word he begins filling out the pass.

As he is writing, he says “This is incredible, you have always been thoroughly insane. How did you do it?”

The lunatic responds, “Oh, it was easy. I divided 128 by Wednesday!”
