Patients Told To Dial .000,000,000,001 for Homeopathy Or 777 For A Witch-Doctor

You can't dial dots or commas. Also, if you are dialling that number for homeopathy you are actually dialling a lot more than normal so the joke doesn't work. The '0.00000000001' homeopathy joke only works as a percentage to denote a small, insignificant amount, but that's not really funny anymore as it has been done to death.
Have you two had a tiff?
Perhaps if there was only 0.000,000,001% of a joke there, it would be absolutely uproarious?
But all right - how about the 777 joke?
Also, I may be wrong, but I am sure you shouldn't use commas for that number.
Why 777? Why not 666 the number of the beast? or 668 the neighbour of the beast?
Sorry, it was 666 which I meant. I'm afraid I'm not particularly into Satanology or whatever it is that has diabolical numbers.
That'll be the Bible then.
I'm pretty sure that it was Revelation 13 where "the number of the beast" is first mentioned. It could well have been 616 though (or, who knows, possibly 777) depending on which original translation you read.
The "Beast" was a description of a vision by John of a multi-headed monster emerging from the sea. It was only in Hollywood that the "Beast" became Satan.
There you go. Good old Google
