That'd be a pretty nice troll if one would give some mathematical equations (or inequalities) to translate and they would be totally wrong. :D

Reminds me of the incident in america, where McDonald's would offer a third pound burger for the same price as Burger King's quarter pound burger. People didn't buy the McDonald's one as "1/3 is smaller than 1/4" since in 1/4 is a bigger digit...

If triono is 1/3 and kvarono is 1/4, how do you say two thirds? Five eighths?
