actually 4/3 is a proper fraction, you idiot. it is the fractional form of 1.333333...
any number that can be written as a fraction or ratio is called a rational number, therefore your joke is wrong as its a proper fraction.

that's true... I guess a horribly lame joke spawned lots of amusing comments afterwards, so all is not lost.
