Pay attention now kids, basic math functions are the roots of more complex problems.

Edit: Totally safe for work.

Didn't Abbott and Costello do a bit that was very close to the same thing? If so, which one would have come first?

Not sure who was first, but Abbott & Costello did 7 * 13 = 28. Same three ways though

[edit: I think Abbot & Costello were first.
I believe "In The Navy (1942)" was the one they did that bit in. Ma Kettle wasn't around until The Egg and I (1947).
