Good morning merry men of the airwaves,
Earlier today Mr. Robertson asked the Abester how many fingers were being held up by the aforementioned Mr. Robertson (I'll dispense with the convolution now).
I have always found that 17 is the best answer to that question. 17 is a prime number so I can't be accused of seeing double or triple, and it's not my fault if the person holding up their fingers can't see their extra digits.
The other answer which I find useful is "why are you asking me, you're the one who put them there".
Regardless of the line I use, I generally get labelled as difficult and get left alone.
