corn on the cob

Have been meaning to post this --

A few weeks back David Letterman showed a print ad that reads:
Corn cobs 4 for $1.00
Works out to 25¢ a piece

My 8 y.o. thought she'd found a mistake on a recent sign she saw reading "25 cents each, 5 for $1.00" until I explained to her about volume discounts, LOL!

CW - does she know about bakers' dozens? Bruegger's Bagels counts a dozen as 13 and the corn vendor at my farmers' market does the same.
