Four blonds want to buy their friend a sweater for her birthday.

They go to a store and find one they want to get. It is $28.00. They can't seem to agree on how much each one should contribute to pay for it. They decide to ask the clerk who is also a blond. She does some calculations and says "ok, you all need to chip in $25.oo each. This seems like an awful lot so they ask the clerk to check her math. She shows them:
$25 plus $25 plus $25 plus $25. Add it up like this:


Add the right side: 5, 10, 15, 20. Then add the left side: 22, 24, 26, 28!
