A football coach walked into the changing room before a game. He looked over to his new signing and said, “I’m not supposed to let you play since you failed arithmetic, but we need you to be in the team. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right then you will be allowed to play.”
The player agreed, so coach looked into his eyes intently and asked, “Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this. What is two plus two?”
The player thought for a moment and then answered, “Four?”
“Did you say ‘Four’?” the coach exclaimed, excited that he had got it correct.
Suddenly all the other players on the team began shouting, “Come on coach, give him another chance!”
