A Joke for April Fool's Day

So an Italian who speaks little English is applying for a job as a cashier. The store is looking for people who can think outside the box, and the Italian thinks he's a perfect candidate. During the job interview, the interviewer tells him that he's got to be proficient in basic math and a simple test will be given to prove his competence.

First, he tells the Italian to add three plus three plus three. The Italian takes a few seconds and, when he's done, shows the interviewer a picture he drew. The interviewer, puzzled, asks him what the picture stands for. The Italian replies,

"It's a tree plus a tree plus a tree. That'sa nine!"

The interviewer sighs, then asks him what thirty three plus thirty three plus thirty three equals. Using the same picture, the Italian shades the leaves in a few seconds, and shows it to the interviewer.

"It's a dirty tree plus a dirty tree plus a dirty tree. That'sa ninety-nine!"

The interviewer has now had it with the Italian's shenanigans. He then asks him to add up to one hundred using the same picture he drew, assured that the Italian couldn't do it. A few seconds pass, and a small dark oval is drawn next to each tree. The interviewer has no clue what it stands for when he's done, and the Italian replies,

"It's a dirty tree and a turd plus a dirty tree and a turd plus a dirty tree and a turd. That'sa hundred!"

Needless to say, he got the job.
