All the numbers go to a party and numbers, being what they are, disperse by parity: all the evens hang around each other and all the odds do the same, with neither group interacting much with each other. As 34 was chatting with 72 he notices 0 standing awkwardly by himself in a dark corner. “Hey 72,” says 34, “That 0 guy is even; let’s invite him over to hand with the even guys.”
72 agrees, so off go the two numbers invite 0 into their little group.
“Hey 0,” askes 34, “why don’t you come an talk with me and 72 and 16 and 22 over here?”
0 sighs heavily and replies, “Sorry. I have nothing to add.”
