ASK MAX

August 18, 2005 Edition

Dear Max:

Why do they sell hot dogs in packs of 8 and buns in packs of 10?

Equal Meat/Bun Ratio Seeker

Hi Seeker,

This is perhaps the easiest question ever. The two extra buns are obviously so you can feed them to your friendly neighborhood dog while you eat your own hot dog. Sharing is only fair. That’s a gimme. Now, gimme those extra buns!

Dear Max:

I am at the eye doctor in the middle of an eye exam, and I had to come out and ask you … which is clearer — 1 or 2? Again, 1 or 2?

Myopic Miranda

Dear Miranda,

I hate the doctor! Thank God you got out! Quick! Keep going before they catch you!
