Counting ability

The scene: Regimental Leadership Week. All officers and SNCOs are listening to a lecture on memory techniques from a Tp Comd. He puts up a slide with lots of flags on it and gives us 10 seconds to count them. Blank slide appears. Whoever guesses correct answer wins box of Quality Street.

Lt: "How many flags?"
CO: "68?"
Lt: "Less"
CO: "69?"

Maybe he was worried he might win the Quality Street :)
On a pedantic note: the Lt's second retort should have been "fewer" and not "less".

Sorry, couldn't help meself!

Quality Street!!!
