“I’ve failed math so many times I can’t even count”

"I’ve failed math so many times I can’t even count” is a jocular line that has been printed on T-shirts and ecards. “I failed maths so many times I can’t even count” was cited Twitter on June 6, 2009. “I failed math so many times I can’t even count” was cited on Twitter on September 4, 2009.

The joke was probably coined by Canadian comedian Stewart Francis.
