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

* Take 1000 and
* add 40 to it.
* Now add another 1000.
* Now add 30.
* Another 1000.
* Now add 20.
* Now add another 1000.
* Now add 10.


































* What is the total?

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.

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.

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.
