“Why did 10 die?"/"Because he was in the middle of 9/11.”

A popular numbers joke is:

Q: Why is 6 afraid of 7?
A: Because 7 8 9.”


A possibly politically incorrect numbers joke about the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center is:

Q: Why did 10 die?
A: Because he was in the middle of 9/11.


The joke was cited on reddit on August 5, 2015. Jokes about the 9/11 tragedy, however, are usually inappropriate.

“Why can’t New Yorkers play chess?"/"They’re missing two towers” is another joke about 9/11.
