What does this Bo Burnham joke mean?

In Bo Burnham’s special “Words, words, words” Bo does a bit about statistics that are messed up/ crazy but true. One of the statistics he says is “.27% of all jenga games are played on 9/11”

What does this mean? Why is it supposed to be funny?I don’t get it- is this a real statistic? If so, where did it come from, and what is the .27% derived from? Am I just being a derp and missing something totally obvious?

  • .27 percent is the same as 1/365. there are 365 days in a year so 1/365 jenga games could potentially be played on 9/11 and that is pretty bad considering what happened on 9/11.

  • This is actually very clever. It’s easier if you think of it as 1/365. Assuming that every day has the same number of Jenga games played as every other day, then if you pick one randomly, there is a one in 365 chance (365 days in a year) that it will be on 9/11 .27% = 1/365.

    Make sense?

  • Don’t know who Bo Burnham is, but i would assume he is refer to twin towers falling on 9/11, akin to jenga towers falling over

  • Jenga games. As in, the blocks falling over? And on 9/11, the twin towers fell. Kind of a joke that makes you cringe.

    0.27% is equal to one day a year. So it’s technically true, assuming that an equal number of jenga games are played every day in a year.
