Intelligent Math

Here's a funny bit of satire from The Rockall Times:

"I tried to answer each problem I was set by adhering to strict Trinitarian principles, but for some reason I kept getting the answers wrong. Eventually I realised: either the concept of the Trinity was flawed; or the entire basis of mathematics was invalid. Naturally I decided that the latter was the case and so I set about developing my new theory."

The new "Intelligent Math" incorporates the belief that 1 and 3 are equivalent, as implied by the concept of the Trinity. Therefore, 1 + 1 is 2... or 6... or 4. And so forth. (Via Evolving Thoughts.)
