Math Blog Post- Stories With Holes

For this math blog post, I decided to make a few stories with holes. 

1. A man goes to his rabbi and says, “Rabbi, is this bacon kosher?” The rabbi takes one look at it and says, “Yes.” How?

2. Two men walk into a bar. One man goes to the bartender and says, “I’ll have a glass of H2O.” The man next ot him says, “I’ll have some H2O, too.” He drinks it and then dies. Why?

ANSWERS:

1. The bacon was made out of soy.

2. H2O2 is the chemical combination for hydrogen peroxide. The bartender thought he meant that, so he gave him peroxide.
