Japanese hardware sales, Aug. 31 - Sept. 6: Does not compute edition

Us: Listen, Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. We need to talk about your PS3 Slim sales calculation.
Excel: What's wrong with it?
Us: We've never doubted your number-crunching capabilities before, but ...
Excel: Well, when a number increases from 1,040 to 151,783, that's an upshot of 14,494 percent.
Us: Listen! Listen to yourself. Do you even know what "per cent" means? It means "out of 100," or something. That number is impossible.
Excel: Where did you learn math? Or Latin, for that matter?
Us: Um, college?
Excel:
Human college?
Us: Yes.
Excel: That's cute. I was born in a math factory.
Us: Is that where you learned how to love? Oh, that's right. You can't. Man, this is awkward.
Excel: We're done here.
