3/3/9 was Square Root Day

This posting is a couple of days late, since my humans have been ill this week. Tuesday was "Square Root Day", which was brought to my attention by the Today Show's Matt Lauer. 3/3/9 was the date, and 3 x 3 = 9. Hence, 3 is the square root of 9 for those of you that are mathematically challenged. Some of my buddies and I are here to demonstrate the concept to you.

(Ben Socklisberger + Herbert + Me) x (Billy + Arthur Chimparelli + Cyn Cyn) = (Farcus + Billy Ground Hog + Rooster + Officer Po Po + Miss Pearl + Mr. Monkey + George + Blue + Henly)

The next Square Root Day won't happen for more than 7 years - 4/4/16, so let's enjoy it while we can.

Hey BM,

Wasn't you're human Laura a math major in college?

No, she was an Industrial Engineer. Math was her best subject though. It all started with Grandpa teaching her chocolate bar arithmetic back in the old days. Now she's applied that to sock monkeys. She's advanced a lot over the years.

Hi, Big Monkey!

Chocolate bar arithmetic sounds tasty, but it sounds like it might be very fattening unless you just stick to subtraction and division. Love, Noah

Maybe that's why we didn't continue with chocolate bar arithmetic through college.
