I read a joke that I just don't understand
August 13, 2009 10:40am CST
This woman was seated next to a man at a conference and they were getting along famously, flirting and laughing. Then the boring lectures started. The man wrote "#" on a napkin and the woman was thrilled! She wrote her phone number on the napkin. The man looked confused then wrote another "#" but added an "X" to the upper left hand corner. I don't understand this joke. Can someone explain it to me?

Hey, don't feel bad. I love humor and darned if I understood this joke either. I'm glad someone explained it. It makes sense that way, but I certainly didn't get it at all until someone explained it. Maybe because I always played tic-tac-toe with X's and O's, not X's and #'s. But, hey, I'm old, so things may have changed by now. Anyway, glad someone cleared it up for me as well because I was also scratching my head over this one.

he wanted to play tictac toe and since it looks like what we use for a number on the pc or in todays slang, she thought he was asking for her number. he was just wanting to play an old time paper game to pass the time. one puts an x in one square, then other person picks a square for an O and whoever can get 3 in a row to connect, wins the game
