Census-Taker: Mr. Leonard? I'm with the U.S. Census Bureau. We sent you a Census form, but you failed to return it to us.
Mr. Leonard: My mail is piled up like crazy.
Census-Taker: Yeah. Well, I just need to fill out this Census form with you. Uh ... how many people live in this residence?
Mr. Leonard: Oh, boy ... good question. I'm bad with numbers. Maybe 80.
Census-Taker: 80 people live in this apartment?
Mr. Leonard: Seems high, doesn't it? Not 80. How about 4? I don't know... I'm so bad at guestimating...
Census-Taker: Well, just take your time, and count.
Mr. Leonard: Okay... there's me... my wife... our plants... we have some candy bars...
Census-Taker: Well, you know, we don't count candy bars or plants.
Mr. Leonard: Well, then, there's just the two of us. Boy, I really overshot with the 80!
