Before you begin, this riddle must be done in your head only -- do NOT write it down.

* Take 1000 and
* Another 1000.

* What is the total?

4100?

4100?

Am I missing something? What was I supposed to get besides 4100?

Oh wait, if you add in 300 Spartans, you get the 4400! OMG, Jordan Collier Roxors!

4100. Unless you count that line where it just says, another 1000, so you don't add it, then it's 3100.

5000

Another vote for 4100. I can indeed add. What's the gag?

4100
?

3100?

4100?

The gag is that most people will accidentally ad the double digits as hundreds, therefore finding the total to be 5000. It got me on the first run through.

5000
edit -900

A lot of people will get to 4090 and then when asked to add 10 will say 5000.

Oh... huh. I thought it was going to be one of those semantic games where the line that says "Another 1000" means you're supposed to start over or something like that.
