The other day we went to Old Navy, and everyone who went in got a free little scratch-off prize card. The girls LOVE those things, and some guy gave us his for them, so we got two. There were two spots to scratch; if you didn’t win on the first one, scratch the second for the consolation prize.
The consolation prize was a tiny bag of jelly bellies gotten at the checkout, which worked really well for our girls. While my wife was trying things on, I read the rules on the back of the card because I’m a geek. The first rule made me laugh out loud, and I do NOT understand why it’s there.
CANADIAN RESIDENTS: You must correctly answer the following skill-testing question to claim a prize/discount. If claimant is under the age of majority, a parent/legal guardian may answer the skill-testing question on their behalf: (10×4)+(3×2)+10 =__________
Is there some law about that in Canada or something? Something magic about the number 56?
A friend figured it out. Check out this document, and look for “Skill-Testing Questions”.
