In this age of technology there is no excuse for that mistake.

Oh man! I know that you meant this to be humorous, but I taught science in a middle school for 34 years. One of my constant refrains was about units - what is your unit? where is your unit? what is the correct abbreviation for that unit? which temperature scale did you use? 72.9 what? etc, etc, etc.

Of course, the granddaddy of unit errors was the failure of the 1999 NASA Mars orbiter as there was a confusion over our stupid English system and metrics.

Remember when Units was a style/brand of clothing? A bunch of separates that could go together in many ways.

Of course. The Big Unit. Shoulda thought of that.

I wonder how he got that name?

Where is my unit?

I think that's biology class.

It's got nothing to do with units. It has to do with misdirection and humor. As long as the math is right, I see no problem.

Dang it, Lodi!

You beat me to the Moon Unit joke!

I agree with Ken. I thought that it was funny.

That reminds me of the one about the Irish road sign:

Speed limit 40 kph for next 2 miles.
