Sarah and I just watched "The Number 23" with Jim Carrey. In keeping with the spirit of the movie (where the number 23 is everywhere and doggone-it, it's out to kill you!) I now present my short, but 23-laden review:
23 is composed of a 2 and a 3
2+3 = 5
23-5 = 18
The 18th letter of the alphabet is "R".
The 5th letter of the alphabet is "E".
And, of course, R and E are the first two letters of "RETARDED."
