    It's not a fifth. And even if it were a fifth, the remainder of the population without that fifth wouldn't be 95%. I'm pretty sure I got all the math in there as wrong as possible. On purpose.

    Read it as if it were spoken by--oh, I don't know--a certain random somebody: a "regular guy" who's never balanced a checkbook in his life, only begins to understand what "percent" means when you point out how there are 100 "cents" in a dollar, and who isn't overly curious about things in general. Except, it seems, baseball box scores and "pussy."

    Or, better, read it as if it were spoken by a crafty slimebag who's PR firm wants people like my fictional "regular guy" to think he's a plainspoken yokel who knows not his ass from a hole in the ground.
