There were these three old men at the doctors, each had an have an appointment with their doctor for a memory test.
The doctor asked the first old man, “What is three times three?”
“274” was his reply.
The doctor was a little concerned by this answer, but decided to continue the memory test and said to the second man, “It’s your turn. What is three times three?”
“Tuesday” replied the second man.
The doctor was now frustrated and concerned, but he again decided to continue with the memory test.
He said to the third man, “Okay, your turn. What’s three times three”?
“Nine” the third man replied.
“That’s great!” exclaimed the doctor, “but I am wondering how you got to that answer?”
“Jeez, Doc, it’s pretty simple,” the third man replied. “I just subtracted 274 from Tuesday.”
