A little math humor

A small percentage?? An answer of 23 means you haven't even been born yet:)

Ah! Could it be that "R" is his wife and his reply sounds more like a maths equation sprinkled with some algebra rather than responding with a touch of romance which obviously is what his wife wants to hear. On the subject of lack of communication between partners this 'story' comes to mind:

A farmer walked into a lawyer's office to enquire about getting a divorce and the conversation went like this:
Lawyer: "Well do you have any grounds?"
Farmer: "Yes, I got about two hundred acres."
Lawyer: "No, you don't understand, do you have a case?"
Farmer: "No, I don't have a Case - I prefer to drive a John Deere."
Lawyer: "No, I mean do you have a grudge?"
Farmer: "Yeah I got a grudge. That's where I park my John Deere."
Lawyer: "No sir, I mean do you have a suit?"
Farmer: "Yes, but I only wear it to church on Sundays."

Fuming, the lawyer said "Well sir, does your wife beat you up or anything. "No" said the farmer, "we both get up about 5.00 am."
Finally, the lawyer asks, "Okay, let me put it this way- why do you want a divorce?" "Well" said the farmer "I can't have a meaningful conversation with her any more."

"Of course not, dear - I love you much more."

I thought I had heard all the maths jokes out there. But this one's new to me (and very funny).
