Trigonometry. Cocaine. A blender. Her noggin. The Force. A capo. The materials at hand. You. A simple mnemonic. The stairs in case of fire. The bathroom. Fuzzy logic. Public transit. Linux. The standard methodology.

Every trick in the book. A mashie-niblick. Hexadecimal. A false passport. Too much eye shadow. Shorthand. Ecstasy. Reverse Polish notation. A sphygmomanometer. Someone else's pen.

Actually, the baby might also be using some of those; to be sure, it's difficult to be sure.

Oh, all right. How about:

Pachisi. The smallest aspiring number. Manganese. A pony. An album by Harry Connick, Jr. The SMTP port. A collection of songs by George Michael. The 576i framerate. A quarter.

But I still don't get it.

Didn't you watch the videos on that site? At least the first one?

Yes. That's exactly what I don't get.

I'm with you. It's about as funny as a Will Farrell movie.

Personally, I think it's a refreshing change from LOLcatspeak and that grinning face made up of semicircles that keeps popping up everywhere even though I don't know what it's from.

You didn't think the origin story was amusing?

I find it funny because (supposedly) there IS a rational explanation known to some that will forever be unknown to the rest of the world. Oh to be a cellphone kiosk operator.

But the correct answer to "What's the baby using?" is apparently 25.

That left me with a lot more questions than it answered. Well, not really. Just one:

I think they just use 25 when no one is looking (which is why it took so long for this to be discovered). I know every time I looked at mine, they were using 63.

If this were "Sesame Street," the guy would turn around and see the baby playing with a big styrofoam representation of the number 25.
