After spotting this quiz on Birdsong's Blog, I couldn't resist giving it a try.
The questions brought a smile to my face. Haul out your imagination and have fun with it.
Sorry guys. Unless you want to be a princess, the quiz won't work for you - but scroll down a bit because everyone can have fun with the Chocolate Math.

Elaine shared this with the EZasPi Yahoo List and told us to spread it around.
I love figuring out why these things work. You only have to figure out why it works if that's part of the fun for you.
YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH---DON'T CHEAT
Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway-
but the Hershey Man will know!
YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH
This is pretty neat.
DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It takes less than a minute
Work this out as you read ...
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!
This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.
- First of all, pick the number of times a week that you
would like to have chocolate(more than once but less than 10)
- Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
- Add 5
- Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator
- If you have already had your birthday this year add 1755 ..
If you haven't, add 1754.
- Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
You should have a three digit number
- The first digit of this was your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).
- The next two numbers are YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2005) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND
WHILE IT LASTS.
Thanks Elaine! Now I know how old I am. How did that happen?
