More than 83%


I'm watching the news this morning and they're talking about some lady that got burned...the reporter (snicker) reports (snicker) that the woman got burned on MORE THAN 83% of her body.

Now that's a pretty precise measurement. 83%. Correct?

But then they go and add the MORE THAN.

More than 83%.

Why didn't they just give the actual percentage of her charred body?

Would 84% freak people out?

And how does one go about measuring burnt flesh anyhow?

Is it math?

SO TO SUM UP:

More than 83% of reporters are idiots.

More than 83% of us wish they got burnt up.

On at least 99% of their bodies. Possibly more.

I think someone should market butter and burnt meat flavoured popcorn.

I'm more than 83% sure that 94% of the people would like it.
