How many is a Brazillion?

1 brazillion = 186,112,794

A joke which has been going around lately is this:

Rumsfeld goes to George W. Bush and goes, "Sir, bad news, in Iraq, four Brazilian soldiers have been killed." Bush replies, "That's terrible! Remind me, how many is a Brazillion?"

Of course, a brazillion is actually equal to the number of people living in Brazil, or approximately 186,112,794. Obviously, it's impossible that 744,451,176 soldiers could have been killed in Iraq. This, of course, is the real joke.

Very few people seem to get it, however.
