There was a little boy who had just learned to count on his fingers.One day his uncle came to visit and the boy was anxious to show off his newly acquired skill. He told the uncle to ask him an addition question. So the uncle asked, "What is three plus four?"
The little boy counts it out on his fingers and said, "Seven." The uncle said, "Listen kid, you cant count it out on your hands because someday when you are in school, a teacher will get mad at you for it. Now put your hands in your pockets."
So the little boy put his hands in his pockets and his uncle asked,"What is five plus five?" The uncle saw movement in the boys pockets, and then the boy innocently replied, "Eleven."

Test for Dementia
Below are four ( 4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK?
Let's find out just how clever you really are.
Ready? GO!!! (scroll down)
You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?
Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!
Try not to screw up in the next question.
To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?
Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?
You're not very good at this! Are you?
Very tricky math! Note: This must be done in your head only.
Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.
Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000 Now add 10. What is the total?
Scroll down for answer.
Did you get 5000?
The correct answer is actually 4100.
Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?
Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.
What is the name of the fifth daughter?
NO! Of course not.
Her name is Mary. Read the question again
Okay, now the bonus round:
There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.
Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?
He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.

When the Pakistanis were being delivered their new fleet of fighter jets, an instructor espically came from USA to explain the Pakistani Air Force the simplictiy of the operation of the planes (from USA because Pakistan buys their planes from them)
So when the first plane was delivered, the instructor said" this has 3 buttons, the one on the top is to take off, the one on the left is to go left and the one on the right is to go right."
The soldiers nodded in understanding. But one soldier raised his hand and asked " But sir, how will we get down?"
The instuctor replied "Oh ! Leave that to the Indians"

A Pakistani, a Bangladeshi & our very own Santa are sitting in a bar one night drinking beer.
The Pakistani drinks his beer & suddenly throws his glass in the air, pulls out a gun & shoots the glass to pieces.
He says " In Islamabad, our glasses are so cheap that we don't need to drink one from the same glass twice."
The Bangladeshi (Obviously impressed by this), drinks his beer, throws his glass into the air, pulls out his gun & shoots the glass to pieces.
He says " in Dhaka, we have so much sand to make glasses that we don't need to drink out of the same glass twice."
Our Santa, cool as a cucumber, picks up his beer & drinks it, throws his glass in the air,
pulls out his gun & shoots the Pakistani and the Bangladeshi.
He says "In India we have so many Pakistanis & Bangladeshis that we don't need to drink beer with the same ones twice !"
