I learned this via the following joke.

*pretend I have a calculator in my hand and I'm pressing each number as I say it.*

"Dolly Parton goes on a diet and in the first week she loses 5 pounds. During the second weight she really tries hard and she loses 8 more pounds. Then in the third and fourth weeks, she can't loose any weight and she looses 0 pounds and 0 pounds. But she rebounds in the fifth week and loses 8 more pounds. What did she loose all together?"

*you flip the calculator upside down and see 80085*

"BOOBS"

I told my husband this joke and he had never heard it. He also didn't think it was that funny. (Though he did snicker when I told it. I think he just thought it was really, really bad.) 


So I like the way you think, OP. And I'm another vote for a flipping frame. I think that'd be cool.

at my school we always put in "5318008", which would explain the upside down bit, which makes the 3 look like an E. hehehe.

I also remember the joke as being centered around Dolly Parton1 as a child. I seem to recall a complicated mathematical formula thatonce added, subtracted, multiplied, et alcame to the final tally of 55378008 or "boobless." I sure hope someone has written that down. Maybe I should check Wikipedia.

When I was plotting out my LCD screen numbers during a lull at work my coworker told me a story about a girl with whom she'd attended school. Back in the days of pagers (remember pagers?) this girl would enter her phone number as 8008135 in order to indicate to her boyfriend that she should call her. The coworker cannot remember ever referring to this girl by her proper name. Her development was so early as so resplendent that the entire social circle in which she traveled elected to refer to her only as "Boobies," a name she graciously accepted. 


1I wonder who grade schoolers use an example these days. Ms. Parton, god love her, is hardly still in the public consciousness. Her chest is still magnificent though.

The story I always knew was (but its actually a pretty lame one)

There was a girl and she weighed 69 pounds and she thought that was too too too (2 2 2) much.  so she went to 51st street, there she saw mr. x, she had 8 operations and when she was done she was...  55378008

6922251x8

you.are.all.nerds.  Cheesy
Love the project, though, although at first I didn't have a clue what it was about! Roll Eyes-till I remembered back to grade school.  I am unworthy, I think. So yeah, probably flip it over to confuse douches like me even more.  Wink
