“Are monsters good at math?”/“No, unless you Count Dracula.”

A math riddle has been printed on many images:
 
Q: Are monsters good at math?
A: No, unless you Count Dracula.

 
Forms of the joke have been cited in print since at least 2001.
 
   
Wikipedia: Dracula 
Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. It introduced the character of Count Dracula, and established many conventions of subsequent vampire fantasy. The novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse, and of the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and a woman led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing.
