The Simpsons go for a meal. It comes to $16. Homer has $7 and Marge has $7. They give it to the waitress and she realises the bill was actually $15 so pockets the dollar difference.

Was the till out?

I'm still trying to figure out why Homer and Marge tried paying for a $16 bill with only $14.

Ah, you're assuming that the Simpsons live in a octal-based world?

Clever puzzle and Philemon is simply brilliant. I never noticed, but now see the number of fingers: http://www.hojohnlee.com/weblog/wp-conte......x300.jpg

Heh, well done guys Smile

It occured to me the other week that the Simpsons should really count in base 8 so I wrapped it up in a gentle parody of the restaurant puzzle to see if you'd reach the same conclusion.
