a general laugh as response... nonetheless, I still think that the

album, we get the following cryptic line:

it's 12... add the incorrect (27) and the correct (12) answers, and you get
39... now, instead of multiplying 3 and 4, add them... you get 7... cram the
two results together and you get (roughly) 739, or 0739...
