In an effort to halt what many consider to be an influx of Islamic, Jihadist thinking on young people, the State of Texas Textbook Committee has banned the use of Arabic numbers in Texas schools.

One member of the Committee said that kids could get by with Roman numerals. After all, most of the important things like the Super Bowl are already using Roman numerals. It would also help reduce the Federal deficit; “How do you write a trillion in Roman numerals anyway?”

Additionally Texas Governor, Rick Perry said, “I know these Roman Numerals could be a bit inconvenient, but I sure as heck don’t wanna empower those git damn Ay-Rabs.”
