Fun and Games with Jenners Wacky Word Problems
Fun loving Jenners, over at Life With a Little One and More, knows how to come up with some original games for all of us to play. Today's "Fun and Games with Jenners" is all about wacky word problems. Jenners asks that we create "word problems that are as ridiculous, detailed, impossible, stupid, and dramatic as possible, in other words, the math does not matter."
I'm happy that this is all about writing and not about math. Numbers and I don't tend to get along. If you want to join in the fun, click on the image above and add your own wacky word problem. Here are two that I came up with while all the wee and not so wee ones were sleeping this morning at 7:30 a.m. Do you have your pencils ready?
Paris Hilton has 82 stilettos in her 4,294 foot closet. She also sent 65,329 text messages to her publicist in June. If she wears only red stilettos to movie premieres, how many times does Paris look at the camera and say, "That's Hot"?
32 tired, cranky 3 year olds enter a McDonald's in Syracuse. 10 whine that they want McNuggets, 3 demand cheese burgers with 2 1/2 pickles, 7 want to know why they can't get a Whopper, 5 need to go potty and 7 dropped their fries on the floor. How many 3 year olds put ketchup in their pockets?
Hop over to Jenners' blog to see her funny word problems!
