“The cost of joining the Roman Numeral Society was exactly $499. I didn’t have ID”

In Roman numerals, D=500 and I=1. “ID” is 500-1 or 499.
     
“This girl wrote the roman numeral for 499 as ID on her math test lmaoooo” was posted on Twitter by David Hill on October 5, 2011. “The cost of joining the Roman Numeral Society was exactly $499. They wouldn’t let me in because I didn’t have ID…” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on December 9, 2021.
         
Other Roman numerals jokes include “I failed my math exam. I couldn’t write 1, 1000, 51, 6, and 500 as Roman numerals. IM LIVID,” “I, for one, like Roman numerals,” “I struggle with Roman numerals until I get to 159. Then it just CLIX,” “I went to a Roman bathroom on the 6th floor. Yes, it was the VI P room,” “Roman numerals to be phased out—not on my watch” and “The Roman numerals for forty (40) are XL” (i.e., weight gain at 40 makes one Xtra Large),
