The Teaser

1. Dexter and Amy were cleaning up after a wonderful Christmas dinner.
"What a great day," Dexter said, "only 365 days until the next one."
"No, it's more," Amy corrected. How?

2. A woman enters into a party and a man kisses her on the lips. Suddenly, the woman's face turns blue, and she faints. Why?

3. When does Oct 31 = Dec 25 make sense?

The Solution

1. The next year was a leap year, so there was actually 366 days until the next Christmas.

2. The man and woman were at a Christmas party and the woman was under the mistletoe. She was allergic to peanuts, and the man had eaten an entire bag of them just before he kissed her.

3. When you use base 8 (Oct) and base 10 (Dec).
