Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Mearriam-Webster Books Incorporated has announced that the new 2010 editions of their best-selling dictionary will include a complete list of numbers, from 1 to 100,000 featured in the edition.

"You can imagine how this will help people who can read but don't know how to count so this is certainly a tremendous break-through for the Merriam-Webster people," stated Abner Doubledorffus, president and publisher of Mearriam-Webster Books.

"We are on the cutting edge of the word business and this move will ensure that both the future of our company and all those illiterate math dummies who know the right words but cannot count worth shit...ahem, cannot comprehend numbers.

Doubledorffus said the list of numbers would also serve to help ancester-researchers find out exactly how old people really were plus it will help some young people, who cannot count, from marrying old farts who claim that after 18 comes 79.
