I love getting my hands dirty working on greening projects around NYC. With a background in program management and environmental education, I work with others to create learning opportunities for our youth. I advocate for holistic living through consumer awareness and community activism.

  1. Those sound like reasonable and funny answers. Any other guesses out there?

  2. Old Funny One:
    5*(X+6) = (X+6)+21
    4*(X+6) = 21
    X+6 = 5.25
    X = -0.75
    So child is being conceived! Meaning Daddy is being intimate with Mommy!

    You saw the table in half; but the two halves together; two halves make a whole (hole) and you crawl out through the hole.
