I read this riddle and I am ashamed of how long it took to figure it out.

For those of you with common sense, or who dabble in "math"....give the other non geniuses a little time before you give the answer.

Three men walk into a hotel and ask for a room. The manager tells them that the room costs $30, so each man puts in $10. After they leave for the room, the manager realizes he gave them the key to a $25 room, and he sends the bellboy after them with the $5 overpayment.

The bellboy decides to pocket some of the money; he gives each of the men $1, and keeps $2 for himself. Now each man paid $10, and got $1 back, so each really paid $9. $9 times three men is $27, and the bellboy kept two, which makes $29. Where did the other dollar go?

It didn't go anywhere, the $2 should have been subtracted from the 27 and not added.

MY NEW NAME IS IN THE SUBJECT.....DON'T LAUGH UNTIL U FIND OUT WHAT YOUR NEW NAME IS ......

We all need a little stress-reliever! This only takes a minute.

Follow the instructions to find your new name.

The following is excerpted from a children's book, Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot Professor Poopypants, by Dave Pilkey, in which the evil Professor forces everyone to assume new names...

1. Use the third letter of your first name to determine your new first name:

a = snickle
b = doombah
c = goober
d = cheesey
e = crusty
f = greasy
g = dumbo
h = farcus
i = dorky
j = doofus
k = funky
l = boobie
m = sleezy
n = sloopy
o = fluffy
p = stinky
q = slimy
r = dorfus
s = snooty
t = tootsie
u = dipsy
v = sneezy
w = liver
x = skippy
y = d in ky
z = zippy


2. Use the second letter of your last name to determine the first half of your new last name:

a = dippin
b = feather
c = batty
d = burger
e = chicken
f = barffy
g = lizard
h = waffle
i = farkle
j = monkey
k = flippin
l = fricken
m= bubble
n = rhino
o = potty
p = hamster
q = buckle
r = gizzard
s = lickin
t = snickle
u = chuckle
v = pickle
w = hubble
x = dingle
y = gorilla
z = girdle

3. Use the third letter of your last name to determine the second half of your new last name:

a = butt
b = boob
c = face
d = nose
e = hump
f = breath
g = pants
h = shorts
i = lips
j = honker
k = head
l = tush
j = chunks
k = dunkin
o = brains
p = biscuits
q = toes
r = doodle
s = fanny
t = sniffer
u = sprinkles
v = frack
w = squirt
x = humperdinck
y = hiney
z = juice


Thus, for example, George W. Bush's new name is: Fluffy Chucklefanny.

My new name is "sloopy fricken nose"

haha I'm John Stevens... wait, that can't be right. If logical reasoning serves anyone what it claims to serve, based on the patterns seen in this thread, my name should be far far more ridiculous. Yes, yes somethings amiss here, somethings very amiss. Good day to you sir!
