Growing up, I never cared much for math (still don’t) but I did enjoy story problems more than anything else we were given in math class. I always thought they added a level of fun to the math problems and at least made them somewhat interesting compared to just seeing a bunch of numbers spewed on a page. One of the most entertaining parts about the math problems we were given was just how absurd some of them were. This old yet still very funny Peanuts cartoon makes fun of just how absurd some of those math problems were and still are I’m sure.
